Every film selected as a Finalist in the 2019 MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival will be eligible to enter the Oscars. MANHATTAN SHORT is in compliance with the rules governing the Oscar Awards set forth by the Academy of Motion Pictures of Arts and Sciences. A.M.P.A.S.
MANHATTAN SHORT films have been to the Oscars before! Many past Finalists from MANHATTAN SHORT have been nominated for an Oscar (Fauve from 2019, and SHOK and Bear Story from 2015, to name a few). Our audiences and cinemas love nothing more than seeing a film they voted for at MANHATTAN SHORT at the Oscars. Once a nominee is announced, our partnering festival screening venues and loyal audiences champion those films and filmmakers through social media all the way to the podium!
