The world’s first global film festival is kicking into gear for 2010. The brainchild of Aussie expat filmmaker Nicholas Mason, the Manhattan Short puts 10 short film finalists to a 100,000-strong world vote across 200 cities, on six continents. Once again, an Australian filmmaker has made the final cut, with Mairi Cameron’s Push Bike screening alongside films from Europe, the UK, Canada and Mexico.
Sydneysiders can look forward to entertainment and drinks after the screening, plus a sneaky after party at Kings Cross’ Beach Haus. Then, after a week of worldwide screenings, you can check to see how the voting panned out, with the winner announced online on October 6.
The Manhattan Short Film Festival Sydney screening is on TOMORROW (Thursday 30 September) at the Chauvel Cinemas
