Benefit ‘Concert’ picks up short pix

Allen, Burns, Lee, Scorsese among helmers to contribute

Attendees at “The Concert for New York City” will be treated to more than just music: Short films by Woody Allen, Edward Burns, Spike Lee, Martin Scorsese, Jerry Seinfeld and Kevin Smith will premiere on widescreen TVs Saturday at Madison Square Garden.

Each short celebrates the spirit of New York in some way.

Concert — a fund-raiser for victims of the Sept. 11 attack on New York City — is sponsored by VH1, Cablevision, Miramax and AOL.

Production of the shorts was supervised for Miramax by Andrew Stengel, veep of acquisitions, and Thom Zadra, counsel, along with Andrew Fierberg and Amy Hobby and their staff at Double A films.

The concert will be telecast live on VH1 at 7 p.m. and will pay tribute to the spirit of New York and the heroism of the rescue workers.

All proceeds will go to the Robin Hood Relief Fund, established by the Robin Hood Foundation, a leader in the fight against poverty in New York City.
