MANHATTAN SHORT 2020 OSCAR QUALIFYING SCREENINGS
MANHATTAN SHORT LOVES OSCAR! Finalists will be part of the MANHATTTAN SHORT Oscar Qualifying Run. This means all selected films will screen for a full week at a cinema in the county of Los Angeles. This run qualifies every film selected in MANHATTAN SHORT for the Oscars.
MANHATTAN SHORT FILMS HAVE BEEN TO THE OSCARS BEFORE! Many past Finalists from MANHATTAN SHORT have been nominated for an Oscar (SHOK and Bear Story from 2015, to name just two). Our audiences and cinemas love nothing more than seeing a film they voted for at MANHATTAN SHORT at the Oscars. Once a nominee is announced, our partnering cinemas and loyal audiences champion those films and filmmakers through social media all the way to the podium! In the last two years at least one film from the MANHATTAN SHORT's Oscar Qualifying Screenings has gone on to be nominated for an Oscar.
YOU BE THE JUDGE!
The Judges of the Finalists' Films are you. Audiences at each venue will be handed a voting card upon entry to each cinema and asked to vote for the ONE film they think should win. Votes are tallied by each cinema and sent through to MANHATTAN SHORT HQ. The overall winner is announced on Sunday November 1st, 2020
The winners of MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival will be announced on the home page at ManhattanShort.com and in the winners link on Monday October 12th, 2020
