The Manhattan Short Film Festival is calling all Indian filmmakers to send in their entries by July 31. All the films in Indian languages, other than English must have subtitles. Ten finalists are shortlisted from over 500 entries and one winner is chosen by audiences across the globe. A global film festival, taking place in over 250 cities across 6 continents during one week will be held from September 27 to October 6th 2013.

Festival Director Anil Sadarangani has collaborated with Mumbai-based PR, to bring MANHATTAN SHORT to India in the last week of September 2013.

The highlight of this festival is the fact that the winners are chosen by the audiences. A list of venues and screenings across the globe is available on their website. 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 winner will be announced online on Sunday, October 6, 2013 in New York.

Nicholas Mason established the MANHATTAN SHORT in 1998  when he projected the finalist films of that year at the back of a truck on a street after his screening venue fell through last minute. It returns to India for the fourth year this year.
