MANHATTAN SHORT began in 1998, when founder Nicholas Mason gathered an audience of 200 people and showed 16 short films on a screen mounted to the side of a truck on Mulberry Street, Little Italy NYC.

A year later, the Festival moved uptown to Union Square Park in NYC, where audiences grew to love the annual event. From those humble beginnings, MANHATTAN SHORT transformed into a worldwide phenomenon.

Celebrating it’s 22nd birthday in 2019 MANHATTAN SHORT is the only film festival on the planet to unfold simultaneously, in more than 350 cinemas on six continents for one week; bringing together over 100,000 film-lovers via the next generation of filmmakers.
