This short film festival is not just one of the largest in the world, it is the world’s first global film festival as audiences in over 500 venues across six continents unite for one week. The festival continues to be a showcase for new voices and perspectives, and the Film Center is proud to once again be the exclusive Columbus host.

Manhattan Short is the only film festival of its kind. The final selections screen simultaneously across the world during a one-week period, where attendees vote for Best Film and Best Actor awards at each participating venue. Every short film selected will automatically become qualified for the Oscars in 2023. Learn more.

Stay tuned—final festival selections will be announced later this summer.
