The 10 films selected for the Manhattan Short Film Festival represent eight countries including Australia, Finland, Canada and Afghanistan, along with films from Iran, the United Kingdom, and three films from the U.S.

The free screening allows attendees the opportunity to vote for the best film and best actor as part of the film festival, which will see the finalists shown at 500 venues across the world.

The films included in this year’s festival are “Oscar-qualified,” meaning they will be automatically eligible for an Academy Award nomination.
