For the third consecutive year, Louisville audiences will participate in the Manhattan Short Film Festival — one of more than 300 cities that will play a part in judging this international contest’s 10 finalists. Billed as “the world’s first global film festival,” work from 10 countries as diverse as Peru, Norway and Poland will converge on New York’s best known borough — which otherwise has little to do with the fest. With the work beamed out to 50 states and six continents, this is much more a worldwide viewing party than a survey of the Manhattan film scene. Your chance to be one of the expected 100,000-plus judges for this competition arrives Tuesday at the Kentucky Center. —J. Christian Walsh
