An exciting opportunity awaits filmgoers. The 2013 Manhattan Short Film Festival takes place worldwide, September 27 through October 6. Of the 628 entries received from 48 countries around the world, Manhattan Short selected 10 short films as finalists. Each film is 18 minutes or less in length. Three hundred venues on six continents are participating and two of those are in Orange County and both in Newburgh.
On Friday, September 27 at 7pm, the 10 films will be screened in the Great Room (101), Kaplan Hall, which is located at the corner of Grand and First Streets. Free, secure parking is available in the garage under Kaplan Hall via the entrance on First Street. On Monday, September 30 at 2pm and 7:15pm screenings are scheduled at Downing Film Center, located at 19 Front Street. Free parking is closeby.
General admission is $5 with SUNY Orange students allowed free entrance at both venues.
This is the 16th year of the annual film festival. An estimated 100,000 individuals attend the screenings. One of the most popular aspects of the festival comes at the end of each screening. The audience becomes the judge. Filmgoers are given voting sheets on which the film titles and actors are listed. Then, they are asked to vote for their favorites. Each venue tabulates and on October 6 at10pm, the winners are announced in New York City.
