Manhattan Short film Festival

When: Thu., Oct. 2, 9 p.m. 2014

THURSDAY, OCT. 2 If you've read a critic's take on films and sneered "I could do better than that," the Manhattan Short Film Festival will let you prove it. Audiences in more than 250 cities judge 10 finalists winnowed from 589 entries representing 47 countries. That's a long way from its beginnings, when 16 films screened on the side of a truck in New York in 1998. This year's group includes shorts from the U.S., Netherlands, England, Australia, Mexico, France, Germany and Norway, with genres ranging from sci-fi and drama to animation. Attend, get a ballot and vote for best film and best actor. Votes from across the world will be tabulated at the festival's HQ, with winners announced Oct. 6 on its website. 9 p.m., $10, 723 Rigsbee Ave., 919-901-0875, www.motorcomusic.com, www.manhattanshort.com. —Curt Fields

Price: $10
