Established in New York City in 1997, The MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival receives over 500 entries from over 40 countries each year. Ten entries are selected as finalists in the annual Festival and are then packaged and distributed on DVD to participating theaters. Audiences from around the world unite not only to view the films, but to vote on them as well. MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival will announce the winner on Sunday, October 6 at 10 pm EST and the Art Center will also post the results at desmoinesartcenter.org. Art Center audiences have predicted the overall winner two of the past three years.
