MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The Manhattan Film Festival is dedicated to developing and discovering new ways to help filmmakers pursue a career out of filmmaking. In the process we introduce filmmakers and their work to new and expanding audiences.


ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
MFF was founded by independent filmmakers that learned first-hand how hard it is to find an independent film an audience. Since our inception we have launched unique and creative programs aimed to help filmmakers succeed. One of these is our widely popular Filmmaker Revenue Sharing Program. Every year this program generates thousands of dollars for independent filmmakers. The festival is covered by local, national, and international media outlets including the New York Times, Good Morning America, Variety, and many more. We have been voted one of “The Coolest Film Festivals in the World″ and named “25 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee” by MovieMaker Magazine.
