The Bloomfield Township Public Library will be a participating site for viewing the highly acclaimed 2023 Manhattan Short Film Festival over two dates, on Saturday, September 30 at 2 p.m., and on Tuesday, October 3 at 6:30 p.m.

The Bloomfield Township Public Library will join over 100,000 film lovers world wide uniting in over 500 cities, across six continents, to view and vote on the ten finalists' films in the 26th Annual Manhattan Short Film Festival. The finalists' entries will screen simultaneously across the world during a one-week period, with the best film and best actor awards determined by ballots cast by audiences in each participating venue.

The final 10 finalists are: Sunless (USA), Voice Activated (Australia), Yellow (Afghanistan), Tuulikki (Finland), The Family Circus (USA), Career Day (USA), Snail (Iran), The Record (Switzerland), The Stupid Boy (UK), Soleil De Nuit (Canada).
