MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The Feature Film Project presented by MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival is perfect for anyone who would like to screen and market their feature film through an already established cinema network across the USA.

Between March 5 and 8, 2015 one Feature Film will screen in over 100 Art House Cinemas across the United States in the 3rd Annual Feature Film Project. Audiences at each venue will be asked if this film should return to that cinema for a theatrical release in 2015. If the majority vote "yes" then, if the producers and or sales agents choose, the film will return to that cinema for a series of screenings that year.

The Feature Film will be chosen by a selection Committee at Art House Convergence by a panel of Programmers and Owners from some of the leading Art House Cinemas in the USA. -

See Selection Committee link at www.TheFeatureFilmProject.com

Theatrical release financial information:
Cinemas will retain 50%, Filmmaker/Producers receive 25%, MANHATTAN SHORT will receive 25%.

MANHATTAN SHORT will cover the costs of DCP, trailers, posters and shipping.

Filmmakers/Producers retain 100% of all digital downloads, VOD, DVD and cable TV rights. The Project is about getting a film into cinemas and letting the public discover it!

About MANHATTAN SHORT: Each year over 100,000 people attend the MANHATTAN SHORT, the world's first global film festival. With over 300 venues around the world, the same organization has come together to introduce the Feature Film Project.

We have the cinemas, we have the audience... the question is, do you have the film?
