The department of media, journalism and film will be screening the 17th Annual Manhattan Short Film Festival Sept. 27, from 6:30 to 10 p.m., at the Plaster Student Union Theater. The event offers the community a chance to join 100,000 viewers across the world to watch and vote on the festival’s 10 finalists, chosen from 589 short film entries across 47 countries.
How does it work?
Viewers will be given a ballot upon arrival that they will fill out at the end of the 10 films, participating in the instantaneous celebration occurring in over 300 cities around the globe during the span of a week. Votes are tallied by each cinema and sent to the festival headquarters. The winner will be announced Oct. 6.
Cost is $10 at the door.
