MANHATTAN SHORT FILM FESTIVAL - 2013
The unique festival where every viewer can vote for the winner is back! MANHATTAN SHORT FILM FESTIVAL-2013 will take place from September 26 to October 7 in 300 cities over 6 continents, including 30 cities in Russia. This year the Festival received 628 entries from 48 countries, with films from USA, England, Ireland, Australia, Finland and France making up the ten finalists.
These films will not only entertain but be judged by an audience of over 100,000 film-lovers across six continents in the 16th annual Manhattan Short. Audiences at each venue will be asked to vote for the one film they think is best — but that's not all! This year the viewers will also get to vote for Best Actor — this new nomination will make the moviegoers' jury even more powerful. The winner of the ultimate audience award will be announced at www.tourdefilm.ru on Monday October 7th.
The festival will take place in Moscow in "Pioner" cinema theatre (Kutuzovsky pr., 21) from 3 till 7th of October and in Saint-Petersburg in "Dom kino" cinema theatre (Karavannaya st., 12) from 29th of September till 6th of October. All films will be shown in the original language with English and Russian subtitles.
