Oscar-Qualifying Screenings in Los Angeles Sept. 22-Sept. 28.

New York, NY, Sept 12: Latvian Pavel Gumeninikov and his short film Just Go! will represent Latvia in the 20th Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival. The 10-minute film is one of 10 Finalists screening in over 250 cinemas across six continents between September 28 and October 8, 2017. Being selected for the Final 10 means Just Go! automatically qualifies for Oscar consideration.

Based on real events, Just Go! is an inspirational story about a young man who lost both legs in a childhood accident who comes to the aid of the girl he loves when she is threatened by villains. Among the film’s highlights is a unique chase sequence involving the main character. “My director of photography is a very skilled roller skater so most of the chase scenes were shot by him carrying a camera on roller skates and chasing the characters,” said Pavel Gumeninikov.

MANHATTAN SHORT is the only film festival of its kind. The Final 10 selections are screened simultaneously across the world during a one-week period, with the Best Film and Best Actor awards determined by ballots cast by the audience in each participating cinema. This year’s Final 10 represent an extraordinary range of genres with comedy, drama, horror, sci-fi, animation, and martial arts short films all featured in the MANHATTAN SHORT program.

Oscar-Qualifying Screenings in Los Angeles.

All Final 10 short films become Oscar-qualified, meaning they will be automatically eligible for an Academy Award nomination, during a special, one-week screening at Arena Cinelounge in Hollywood from Sept. 22 to Sept 28, with lunchtime shows 12-2pm each day.

Just Go! is the only film to represent Latvia. The other 9 MANHATTAN SHORT finalists hail from eight countries with films from Syria, Georgia and Just Go representing their respective countries for the first time. Two short films hail from Spain, the only country with multiple Final 10 selections, while short films from USA, UK, Italy, New Zealand, and Switzerland complete the program. These Final 10 short films represent the best short films from among a record 1615 submissions from 75 countries received by MANHATTTAN SHORT for 2017, testimony to the enduring vibrancy and creativity of short films.

The Final 10 are:

Do No Harm (New Zealand), Behind (Spain), Fickle Bickle (USA), Hope Dies Last (United Kingdom), The Perfect Day (Spain), Just Go! (Latvia), Mare Nostrum (Syria), Viola, Franca (Italy), In a Nutshell (Switzerland), 8 Minutes (Georgia).

You Be the Judge!
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 Film and Best Actor. MANHATTAN SHORT is the ultimate audience award that salutes the creative talents of both directors behind the camera and actors in front of it. Votes will be sent through to MANHATTAN SHORT HQ with the winner announced at ManhattanShort.com on Monday Oct 9, at 10AM EST.

MANHATTAN SHORT's international appeal is among its biggest attributes. "Twenty years ago, I started the MANHATTAN SHORT FILM FESTIVAL when I mounted a screen to the side of a truck in Mulberry Street in Little Italy in New York City to a crowd of just over 200 people. This year, there will be over 100,000 film lovers gathered in over 250 venues across six continents for the same event. Looking back, what fascinates me most is the MANHATTAN SHORT was never once reliant on celebrities or corporate sponsors to exist. It was all about great films, a great concept, great venues and an appreciative audience. It was that combination that has made MANHATTAN SHORT one of the largest short film festivals in the world today. I’m so proud to be part of it because it was the public that created it.-- Founding Director Nicholas Mason.
