Manhattan Short
The World's First Global Film Festival

"8 MINUTES"  Wins 20th Annual Film Festival in record breaking year.

"8 Minutes" from Georgia was crowned the winner in the 20th Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival after organizers tallied a record number of votes from audiences in over 300 venues worldwide. "8 Minutes" won the Gold Medal while "Viola, Franca" claims Silver and "Mare Nostrum" takes home the Bronze. The Best Actor Award was won by Aleksandrs Ronis starring in "Just Go!".

"This was by far the closest MANHATTAN SHORT on record," said founding director Nick Mason. "The leaders in the voting in both film and actor categories changed four to five times. I'm sure there are many people out there who agree with the winners, but a lot more who disagree. And that's what makes this Festival great." Click Here to view winners 2017.
