Filmgoers in Charlotte will unite with audiences in over 300 cities spanning six continents to view and judge the work of the next generation of filmmakers from around the world during the 21st Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival sponsored by The Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture. This event will take place in Charlotte at the new $9.5 million theatre on the campus of Northwest School of the Arts, 1415 Beatties Ford Road. Showtimes are Friday Oct. 5, 7:00 pm & Saturday Oct. 6, 7:00 pm. Reserve your complimentary seats today while tickets last. Space is limited.


The Final Nine are screened simultaneously across the world during a one-week period (September 27 to October 7, 2018), with the Best Film and Best Actor awards determined by ballots cast by the audiences in each participating venue. By virtue of their selection by MANHATTAN SHORT, each short film is automatically Oscar-qualified. MANHATTAN SHORT is the only event of its kind.

The Nine MANHATTAN SHORT finalists hail from eight countries with films from Austria, Canada, Germany, Hungary, Kosovo, New Zealand, USA, and two films from the United Kingdom. These Final Nine short films represent the best short films from among 1,565 submissions from 73 countries received by MANHATTAN SHORT for 2018, testimony to the enduring vibrancy and creativity of short films. This year’s Final Nine represent an extraordinary range of film genres that includes intimate dramas; fast-paced animation; spine-tingling tales; a World War II epic; a film shot entirely underwater and comedy as part of the MANHATTAN SHORT program.Films are rated PG-13.
