Irish Audiences To Judge Manhattan Shorts
11 Sep 2006 :
The Manhattan Short Film Festival screening tour arrives at Galway’s Town Hall Theatre on September 24th. Irish audiences will participate in a worldwide vote for the Best Short Film from the MS programme selection.

Galway is one of 29 locations in Europe and 43 in North America to participate in the festival screening tour. 489 short filmmakers from a record 39 countries entered this year’s Festival. The films of the 12 finalists will screen 190 times in 72 cities in 14 countries over the nine days between September 14th and 23rd, 2006. The winner will be announced after the last screening in New York City’s Union Square Park on Sunday, September 24th, hours after the event has screened in Galway.

Irish short film ‘Last Night’ from director Conor Morrissey and producer Jackie Larkin has been selected as one of the 12 finalists. The short features performances from Irish actors Orla Brady (Proof, Nip Tuck) and Liam Cunningham (The Wind That Shakes The Barley) and was photographed by Declan Emerson.

“I expect Europe to grow as fast as the US,” says Festival director Nicholas Mason. “I love the idea that the day evening the Festival is screening in Galway, it is also being seen in Cagliari Italy, Krakow, London, Hamburg and New York City where the winner will be announced. All these people will be coming together to judge twelve short films in their local cinemas, not on the Internet or in front of a TV, and that certainly excites me and most definitely the filmmakers.”

Ticket prices are €7 general admission. All short films are no more than 15 minutes in length. The entire program runs 2 hours with a 10-minute intermission. For more information and to read interviews with the 12 finalists, visit the Manhattan Short Film Festival’s website at www.MSfilmfest.com.
