Always a popular event for us, Normal Theater film-goers will unite with audiences in over 300 cities spanning six continents to view and judge the work of the next generation of filmmakers from around the world. The Final Ten are screened simultaneously across the world during a one-week period (September 26 to October 6, 2019), with the Best Film and Best Actor awards determined by ballots cast by the audiences in each participating venue.

The Final Ten MANHATTAN SHORT finalists hail from seven countries with films from France, Iran, Canada, Finland, and Germany alongside two films from USA and a record three from the United Kingdom. These Final Ten films represent the best short films from among 1,250 submissions from 70 countries received by MANHATTAN SHORT for 2019, testimony to the enduring vibrancy and creativity of short films worldwide.
