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

The Project's aim is to help a film move from the film festival circuit into the neighborhood cinemas with a nation-wide test screening of the film. Viewing audiences are polled as to whether the film is deserving of a wider release.

Between Thursdfay March 10 and Sunday March 13. 2016, one feature film will debut in cinemas across the United States in the 4th Annual Feature Film Project. On entry to each cinema, audiences will be handed a voting card with the question, Should this film be seen in cinemas across the USA?"..

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