Thrillers, horror, science fiction and action converge at Etheria Film Night, a mix of mostly short films from an international group of filmmakers. Co-presented by the American Cinematheque, this one-night-only event showcases the diversity of women working in genre film. Selections include Wakening, the sci-fi story of a Cree woman in a dystopian Canada; The Jelly Wrestler, an action-comedy about wrestling in jelly; and Dia de los Muertos, a horror flick in which women get back at their abusers. The evening is the North American premiere of Axelle Carolyn's supernatural feature, Soulmate, which includes a director Q&A (moderated by Fangoria's Rebekah McKendry) and cocktail reception. The event also marks the L.A. premiere of Rose McGowan's directorial debut, Dawn. You can buy tickets for the 4 p.m. Soulmate screening or the 7:30 p.m. shorts showcase. Both tickets include admission to the cocktail reception held between screening sessions. Etheria also is hosting a gear drive for Reel Girls, which provides classes for girls and young women. If you have gaffer's tape, SD cards or other filmmaking supplies to donate, bring them with you. Egyptian Theatre, 6712 Hollywood Blvd., Hlywd.; Sat., July 12, 4 & 7:30 p.m.; $11.,
