New York NY Feb 25th, 2021. This year was MANHATTAN SHORT's first venture into the virtual world and it's something we look forward to continuing in 2022. As always we listened to your feedback and plan to make improvements to the online experience. We would like to thank everyone involved in our inaugural year. A special thanks to Cinesend who created the means for the event, the filmmakers who created the content, and of course the audience who took part in the event.

Without Further Ado, The Winner Of The First-ever Manhattan Short Online Film Festival Is...
1,2,3...All Eyes On Me written and directed by Emil Gallardo. The film is about a dangerous crisis that suddenly engulfs an elementary school campus. It was a convincing winner, taking over 46% of the online votes. Congratulations to Emil Gallardo and the team behind the film.
