Film Lovers in Springfield, Missouri will get a chance to unite with audiences in over 300 cities around the world to view and vote on the “Best of Festival Winner” during the 16th Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival. The Missouri State University Film Series will be the only venue in Missouri to screen this wonderful international short film festival.
Each year, the MANHATTAN SHORT FILM FESTIVAL selects 10 international short films from hundreds of entries. Over one week at the end of September and beginning of October, audiences at each venue will vote for the film they think should win “best of festival” honors. This is truly the only global audience-choice film festival in the world.
Over 100,000 people are expected to take part in this year’s festival. Don’t miss your chance to be part of a global audience and a judge for one of the world’s finest short film festivals! This year features an animated documentary, comedies, thrillers, historical dramas and even a short musical.
Come out and have a great time at Missouri State’s Plaster Student Union Theatre on Saturday, September 28th at 7 p.m. Doors will open 6:30!
Tickets: $10 at the door. Most of the proceeds will go to fund the Digital Film Production Scholarship which supports the work of digital film production students in the Media, Journalism & Film Department at MSU.
