BUEI to screen Oscar-nominated films

Bermuda is screening films as part of the Manhattan Short Film Festival (Image supplied)

Oscar-nominated films will be screened in Bermuda with the return of the Manhattan Short Film Festival.

In its 26th year, the festival is a worldwide film event where the top ten finalists will be shown in more than 500 venues across six continents.

Best Film and Best Actor awards are determined by ballots cast by audiences in each participating venue with shortlisted films qualifying for the Oscars.

This year’s finalists come from eight countries with films from Australia, Afghanistan, Finland, Iran, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and Canada, alongside three short films from the America.

A spokeswoman for BUEI said: “Films are linked by a common theme ― how we face adversity, whether it is imposed by others or arises from personal circumstances.

“The final ten short film selections feature narratives that are dramatic, sometimes humorous, occasionally magical and always inspirational.”

Tickets for Manhattan Short are $15 for general admission and $25 for a Big Screen Package which includes a drink of choice (a complimentary glass of wine from California’s own Beringer Main & Vine, an Italian Moretti Beer, or a non-alcoholic beverage) and a snack pack to enjoy during the screening.


• Thursday September 28, 7.30pm to 9pm
