MANHATTAN SHORT winners announced!

"8 MINUTES"  Wins 20th MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival in record breaking year.

8 Minutes" from Georgia was crowned the winner in the 20th Annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival after organizers tallied a record number of votes from audiences in over 300 venues worldwide. "8 Minutes" won the Gold Medal while 


"Viola, Franca" (Italy) claims Silver 
 "Mare Nostrum" (Syria) takes home the Bronze. 

Best Actor
The Best Actor Award was won by Aleksandrs Ronis starring in "Just Go!".

The Strand results were slightly different:

1. 8 Minutes
2. Mare Nostrum
3. Viola Franca
So, the Vicksburg audience chose the same top three films but the order of the second and third place was reversed.

Voting for best actor in Vicksburg was close. Our results put Tarek the barber from Hope Dies Last as our winner, but Aleksandrs from Just Go was right behind him.

Thanks to all who came and made this a great event. And thanks again to Martin's at Midtown for their afterparty.
