Saturday, March 1

Here's your chance to learn from the cream of the crop in film editing - for free! - at the Egyptian Theatre. Starting at 10:30 a.m. is the Invisible Art, Visible Artists seminar, featuring a conversation with this year's Oscar-nominated editors. They are: Gravity's Alfonso Cuarón and Mark Sangar, American Hustle's Jay Cassidy, Crispin Struthers and Alan Baumgarten, Captain Phillips' Christopher Rouse, Dallas Buyers Club's Jean-Marc Vallée (credited as John Mac McMurphy) and Martin Pensa and 12 Years a Slave's Joe Walker. No reservations are needed, but it is first come, first serve, so be there when the doors open at 9:30 a.m. if you want a shot at getting in.

Then, forget the traditional rom-com tropes of guy-getting-girl at the top of the Empire State Building or in the middle of a torrential downpour. The new thing is the highly romantic backdrop of air-sex championships. The Love & Air Sex Road Show is coming to town at the Crest Theater at 8:30 p.m., bringing the comedy film's surprisingly sweet (at times) story of Stan (Michael Stahl-David), who comes to Austin, Texas, during the championships to try to "run into" his ex, Cathy (Ashley Bell).

Before she became one of the 36 founders of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and co-founder of United Artists, she was one of the biggest movie stars and America's Sweetheart. Honoring this amazing female pioneer in film is the Hollywood Heritage Museum with Evening @ the Barn: Discovering the Rare, Early Mary Pickford at 7:30 p.m. This program includes a special screening of 1915 silent film Rags, which stars Pickford as a feisty gal with a scrappy spirit and a mean left hook. The film will have a new score and musical accompaniment by Andrew Manley.

The documentary Honor Diaries aims to spark a conversation about women's rights by profiling nine advocates with ties to Muslim-majority societies who have taken a stance against honor violence. The 7:30 p.m. screening at the Museum of Tolerance will be followed by a Q&A with the film's producers and the women featured in the doc. Tickets are $12 for members, $15 for the general public.
