The Manhattan Short Film Festival has come a long way since founding director Nick Mason threw a screen against the side of a New York City truck in 1998 to screen a few shorts. Now, more than 100,000 people will gather around the world to watch and vote on this year’s finalists in a filmic Olympiad that you can only see on two nights at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. “The films you see with other people you remember, and you remember longer,” says Mason. He adds that this creation of community, here at the MFAH, makes the festival feel “like it’s yours, even though it’s happening in 300 places across six continents.” The films include Spanish horror, American comedy and a critique of materialism using fruit, from Switzerland.

6 p.m. Sunday and 7 p.m. October 7. 1001 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-639-7515 or visit mfah.org/films. $8 to $10.
