MANHATTAN SHORTS will be screened live in the LBIF over 3 Fridays this year! Held in the LBIF gallery, we will screen this film festival a little differently to accommodate safe social distancing measures. Each screening will be strictly limited to only 30 tickets and masks are required to be worm throughout the entirety of the screening.

Don’t miss out on this year’s amazing festival! By virtue of their selection by MANHATTAN SHORT, each short film is automatically Oscar-qualified. Join us for a night of independent film & vote for your favorite one!

This year’s Final Nine selections use drama, comedy and animation to address an astonishing number of themes, ranging from identity to parenthood to the seemingly universal frustration caused by the Department of Motor Vehicles no matter the country. The directorial voices are both male and female from countries large and small, often inspired by personal and sometimes harrowing, experience. This year’s Final Nine screening also is a rare instance when gripping dramas from Iran, Israel, and the State of Palestine are featured in the same program. – Click to view Finalists 2020

Tickets must be purchased online in advance. Note: all 3 screenings will be the same film line-up.
