The Arts Center will host the MANHATTAN SHORT FILM FESTIVAL September 23 and 30 and October 1 at 7:30 p.m.

The first MANHATTAN SHORT was held in 1998, when 16 short films were shown onto a screen mounted to the side of a truck on Little Italy's Mulberry Street in New York City, and has blossomed into a worldwide phenomenon. MANHATTAN SHORT is the only film festival that unfolds simultaneously in cinemas around the world, bringing more than 100,000 film lovers across six continents together for one week, to view the work of 10 fantastic filmmakers.

Which of these 10 short films is the best? That's up to a worldwide audience to decide. Cinema-goers across the United States and around the globe will become instant film critics as they are handed a ballot upon entry that allows them to vote for the Best Short Film and Best Actor. The world's directors and actors anxiously await your decision!

View these films and cast your vote. Three showings at The Arts Center September 23, September 30 and October 1 at 7:30 p.m. Seating is limited, so get your tickets early at The Arts Center or by calling 701-251-2496. $10 Arts Center Members/$15 General Admission.
