Every spring, the Short Film Corner at Cannes features hundreds of the world's best shorts. Now, for the third year running on YouTube, you'll be able to watch 10 of the best, courtesy of the National Film Board of Canada's 7th Annual Online Film Competition.

How does the competition work? The curators at the NFB picked their favorite films from the Short Film Corner, choosing an eclectic mix of languages and genres. To vote, all you have to do is watch and thumbs up the ones you like. Voting is open to users across the globe. NFB will tally the votes and the winner will be announced at Cannes and on the NFB's YouTube channel on May 19.
