The Feature Film Project, presented by the 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 debut in 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 this cinema for a theatrical release in 2015. If the majority vote "yes" then, if the producers choose, the film will return to that cinema for a series of screenings that year.

The Feature Film will be chosen by a panel of Owners/Programers from some of the United States leading Art House Cinemas.
