LEWISTON — The Public Theatre, 31 Maple St., is hosting the 21st annual MANHATTAN SHORT Film Festival at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Sept. 28 and 29. Tickets are still available, and attendees will get to become film critics for an evening, voting for the best films on a ballot.

Nine short films from around the world will be simultaneously screened in over 300 cities spanning six continents during a one-week period, with the Best Film and Best Actor awards determined by the total ballots cast by the audiences in this Oscar-qualified film festival. 
The final nine films, as well as the countries they are from, are: “Lacrimosa,” Austria; “Fauve,” Canada; “Someone,” Germany; “Chuchotage,” Hungary; “Her,” Kosovo; “Fire In Cardboard City,” New Zealand; “Baghead,” UK; “Two Strangers Who Meet Five Times,” UK; and “Home Shopper,” United States.
