MANHATTAN FILM FESTIVAL New York, New York – USA April 18 to 29, 2018
The 12th Annual Manhattan Film Festival (MFF) is named by MovieMaker Magazine as one of “The Coolest Film Festivals in the World” and as one of “25 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee.” Beloved for its infectious energy MFF ensures an unforgettable party atmosphere for twelve days of moviemaking madness all unfolding at Cinema Village in New York City.
The 2018 Grand Prize winner will receive a theatrical screening in Los Angeles helping their film reach a broader audience.
Recent highlights include The Pathological Optimist directed by Miranda Bailey receiving theatrical distribution after opening the 2017 Festival. The documentary David & Me premiered at the 2014 Festival and garnered major media covered regarding the wrongful conviction of David McCallum. Since the screening, Brooklyn DA saw coverage of the film in the press leading him to review McCallum’s case. McCallum is now vacated. In 2015 MFF had the pleasure of partnering with MLB baseball legend Joe Torre and the Torre Safe at Home Foundation in an effort to raise awareness about domestic violence. High school students were invited to the special event to produce a short film about children affected by domestic violence.
