Founded by Nicholas Mason in 1998, the Manhattan Short Film Festival has grown from a humble presentation screened on the side of a truck to a far-reaching global affair encompassing upwards of 250 cinemas spread across six continents. With alums who have gone on to earn Oscar nods, Manhattan Short is now billed as a “breeding ground for the next big thing in film.” An interactive draw for opinionated cinephiles, the top awards (Best Film and Best Actor) are determined by audience votes collected at screenings around the world. Narrowed down from 589 entries representing 47 countries and ranging in length from eight to 17 minutes, the fest’s 17th annual program comprises Ben Brand’s 97% (Netherlands), Alix Lambert and Sam Chou’s Crime: The Animated Series (U.S.), Elena Fuller’s On the Bridge (UK), James Croke’s Shift (Australia), Andreas Thaulow’s The Fall (Norway), Thierry Lorenzi’s On/Off (France), Josh Soskin’s La Carnada (Mexico), Bexie Bush’s Mend and Make Do (UK), Monn Molson’s The Bravest, The Boldest (U.S.) and Erik Schmitt’s Rhino Full Throttle (Germany).

Fl!ght Gallery showcases a collection of works artist Ed Wilson has created over the last 18-plus years, from castings to large-scale sculpture.
Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum hosts an opening reception for Houston based artist Tommy Gregory, whose sculptural, photographic and installation based works deal with technology, communication and patience. In a modern society of instant gratification, the “smart” device takes over and patience falls to the wayside. Gregory's work "in this exhibition gives the viewer a tongue-in-cheek look at [his] take on all of this...From selfies to the planned obsolescence of rapidly changing technologies.”
On Friday, October 3 SAY Si and UTSA will present “SERIE: A Serie Project Retrospective,” an exhibition of 100+ Serie Project artworks never before displayed from the private collection of Drs.

Roadkill Ghost Choir’s website describes their music as “Tom Petty by way of Radiohead and Cormac McCarthy” and—for their somber, folky, alternative, Southern Gothic flair—that bloated description isn’t too far off. The Florida quintet’s debut LP, In Tongues, was released on August 19 and stands as a testament to the band’s sonic vision. Pronounced and rolling percussion, steel guitar, spacey noise and the singularly pretty, wiry voice of lead singer/songwriter Andrew Shepard, along with his dark and symbolically suggestive lyrics, make Roadkill Ghost Choir a band to be excited about.
Forming the Beat in the late ’70s as his personal power pop pulpit, Paul Collins helped set the tone for the genre for years to come with his speedy, fructose-packed guitar pulses. On “Rock ‘n’ Roll Girl” and “Don’t Wait Up for Me,” two of the Beat’s more famous compositions, Collins spits out tales of romance and heartbreak over a trued backbeat, trading off between a twangy purr and impressive group harmonies. With an original run into the early ’90s, Collins revived the Beat in the early aughts, touring China, cutting new tunes and joining Green Day for their Broadway production of American Idiot. Sowing the early seeds of power pop, Collins is still enjoying the harvest, gigging with bands in the tow of his legacy. With the Rich Hands, the Bolos, Dark Planes.
