Christie Sponsors 8th Annual Manhattan Short Film Festival September 16 – 25, 2005

Founding Sponsor of Festival, Christie Provides Next Generation DLP™ Projector to Showcase Festival Finalists in New York City on September 25
Christie, a major provider of visual solutions for business, entertainment and industry, announced that it is a sponsor of the 8th Annual Manhattan Short Film Festival (MSFF), September 16 -25, 2005. Christie, a founding sponsor of the festival, is providing a Christie Roadster S+16 3-Chip DLP™ projector, one of the brightest projectors in its class. From September 16 – 24, festival entries will be shown on over 160 screens in 31 states throughout the U.S. Screening of the twelve festival finalists will be held on September 25 in New York City’s historic Union Square Park and is free to the public.

According to Nick Mason, festival director and founder, the twelve finalists will be selected from votes cast by audiences at the individual screenings nationwide. This year, over 500 entries were submitted from 30 countries around the world. The winning films will be projected on a giant, 50-foot screen using the Christie Roadster S+16 projector, featuring 16,000 ANSI lumens, SXGA+ resolution and 10-bit image processing. The grand prize this year is a “filmmaking package” to create a feature film that includes grip, lighting, sound and distribution.

Since its early beginnings on New York City’s fabled Mulberry Street, the festival has grown dramatically, attracting filmmakers from all over the world and expanding the number of venues in which entries are shown. Screenings are becoming highly anticipated events, with some venues reporting sold-out performances. The festival is also acquiring a reputation in the industry for consistently attracting talented filmmakers who are on the verge of discovery. Past festival participants have gone on to make and direct such popular feature films as “Ice Age,” “Robots,” and “The Girl Next Door”.

“The MSFF is always trying to push the technology envelope,” said Mason. “This year, 70% of all entries were shot digitally, and all of the films will be viewed digitally. Christie has been a supporter of the festival from the beginning, and their projectors are an integral part of our successful venture into the digital world. Christie’s projectors offer exceptional color and image brightness, providing the most accurate representation of the artists’ visions.”

Gary Fuller, Vice President of Christie’s Business Products group, remarked, "The MSFF is truly a people’s festival and represents the future of entertainment, in which digital technology plays an increasingly important role. Christie is proud to support this unique and extraordinary festival that has given so many filmmakers from around the world an opportunity to showcase their vision and be recognized by the industry.”
