The Redlands Cinema Classic is coming back.
The new owners of LOOK Cinemas have agreed to let the Redlands Art Association continue its foreign film series. To inaugurate the return this fall, the Manhattan Short Film Festival established by founder Nick Mason in New York City will be shown on Sept. 29 and 30.
Mason describes it as a global festival. He began the festival on Sept. 27, 1998, when he attached a screen to a truck on Mulberry Street in New York City as about 300 New Yorkers looked on.
Before entering the Redlands theater, attendees will be given a ballot.
After the films have been viewed attendees will gather in the restaurant lobby of the theater for snacks and drinks, where they will cast votes and have lively, fun discussions as to which film they consider to be the winners of: best picture, best actor, best actress and all other categories outlined on the ballot.
Ballots will be placed in receptacles in the lobby.
They will be tallied by email to Manhattan Short Fest where they will be added to the ballots of the more than 500 venues in cities throughout the United States, Canada, Austria, Australia, Belarus, Croatia, France, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Ukraine, South Africa, Bermuda, Mexico, Argentina and India.
Winners will be announced the following week.
