Manhattan Film Festival at Jefferson County Library
September 22 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Join Jefferson County Library as we cohost the Manhattan Film Festival. We will have two different dates for showings to view the 10 outstanding short films. The first one will be Thursday, September 22nd at 5:30 PM and the second will be Thursday, September 19th at 5:30 PM.
During September 22–October 2, 2022, more than 100,000 film lovers will gather in over 400 screening venues across six continents for just one reason—to view 10 outstanding short films chosen as finalists in the 25th annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival. In the past, more than 80 libraries from across the USA have joined the event with great success, producing an enthusiastic response from the participating libraries and their filmgoers. This success showed us that libraries are not just about books; they are community centers and are about building community.
You Be the Judge! Not only do MANHATTAN SHORT filmgoers get the chance to watch the cream of the year’s international short films, every audience member also plays an integral part in deciding the winner. By casting their vote for their favorite film and actor, our worldwide audience determines the ultimate victor.
*THESE FILMS ARE UNRATED AND INTENDED FOR ADULTS.*
