In this Brave New World we are experiencing, we need STORIES now more than ever!
Stories make people think, feel, and most importantly, stories help people make new choices about life.
How many people do you think made a change in their lives after seeing Rocky? Or Chariots of Fire? Or Shindler’s List? Or even E.T.?
Stories are not just entertainment. They teach, make people laugh and cry, and they INSPIRE people to reach out and connect again, and often, they inspire people to tell their own stories too.
So Manhattan Rep’s STORIES Film Festival is about the narrative, the amazing adventure, the love lost and found again, the crazy challenge, the social commentary, the wacky situation, the impossible dream, how to survive and actually have some fun in a pandemic, and so much more, as we celebrate digital storytelling at it’s finest!
From Saturday May 1, 2021 - through Monday night May 31, 2021, we will be streaming Short Films, and Short Zoom Theatre Films (and some “Zoomies” too) online where a worldwide audience can vote on your submission.
