Manhattan Short Film Festival

Movie lovers in New York City, San Antonio and other cities around the world will share their love for cinema simultaneously when approximately 100,000 of them will convene in front of a movie screen for the 2018 Manhattan Short Film Festival. During the evenings of September 28 and 29, and October 5 and 6, cinephiles from six continents will watch nine finalists and vote on their favorite short film, performance and screenplay. Once all the votes are tallied, winners will be announced October 8. Finalists were chosen from over 1,500 entries from 73 countries. This year, the short with the most star power is Home Shopper, a film that marks the directorial debut of Academy Award-nominated actor Dev Patel (Lion). It follows Penny Turner (Sophie Kargman), an unhappy wife in a loveless marriage who finds comfort in watching the Home Shopping Network on TV. Also starring in the film is San Antonio business owner Armie Hammer (Call Me by Your Name). Other finalists for the 2018 festival are: Baghead (dir. Alberto Corredor Marina), Fire in Cardboard City (dir. Phil Brough), Her (dir. More Raca), Two Strangers Who Meet Five Times (dir. Marcus Markou), Someone (dir. Marco Gadge), Chuchotage (dir. Barnabás Tóth), Fauve (dir. Jérémy Comte) and Lacrimosa (dir. Tanja Mairitsch).

    Owned by a man with beard enough for two, Mark Vollmer’s coffee trailer offers quality coffee and pastries to cappuccino-craving commuters at 410 and Nacogdoches. In the time since it’s opened, the area surrounding this coffee trailer has transformed into a hub of food vendors with varied seating options, some natural greenery and occasional live music. Grab an iced latte (there’s house-made almond milk for vegans, too) and admire one of the classic muscle cars that frequently stop by.
