September/October Community Events:
Manhatten Short Film Festival at the Arena Theater
For the third time, the Arena Theater will participate in the Manhatten Short Global Film Festival. This is a special Film Club event and admission is $10; membership prices do not apply. This has become quite the popular event, come early for the best seats in the house!
This year, MANHATTAN SHORT received 589 short film entries from 47 countries. England, Norway, Australia, Netherlands, France, Mexico, Germany and the USA are the countries represented by the 10 Finalists. These short films will not only entertain a global audience but will be judged by them as well. Cinema goers will become instant film critics as they will be handed a ballot upon entry that allows them to vote for the Best Film and Best Actor. The 10 selected films are set in diverse locales, ranging from outer space to the deserts of Mexico and the mountains of Norway to the streets of New York, Berlin, London and Amsterdam.
Screenings start at 7:00pm.
