The Other Final is a 2003 documentary film, directed by Johan Kramer, about a football match between Bhutan and Montserrat, the then-lowest ranked teams in the FIFA World Rankings. The game was played in the Changlimithang Stadium, Thimphu, Bhutan. Bhutan won the game 4-0. The referee was Englishman Steve Bennett.

The movie was made after the Netherlands, a team that normally qualifies, failed to do so for the 2002 FIFA World Cup. Kramer, the director, couldn't cheer on the Dutch side during the World Cup, so decided to make a documentary about teams that were worse than the Netherlands, and chose these two. The game was played on the morning of the 2002 World Cup Final between Germany and Brazil.
