From September 27 to October 7 in theaters around the world, more than 100,000 film lovers in some 250 cities gather to view and vote on the finalists in the annual Manhattan Short Film Festival. Always a popular event at the Museum!

Each screening features the same program of nine short films. 

The nine 2018 Manhattan Short finalists are:

Lacrimosa (Austria), Fauve (Canada), Someone (Germany), Chuchotage (Hungary), Her (Kosovo), Fire in Cardboard City (New Zealand), Baghead (UK), Two Strangers Who Meet Five Times (UK), and Home Shopper (USA).

All nine short films become Oscar-qualified, meaning they will automatically be eligible for an Academy Award nomination after the screenings in Hollywood.

General admission is $10. MFAH members, students with ID, and seniors (65+) receive a $2 discount.
