If you’re looking for a fun film screening and live music event that includes a.c. this weekend, FilmShop, a local filmmakers collective, is hosting their annual showcase and party at Rough Trade on Saturday.

The evening features short films created by FilmShop members, each with their own unique take on a different theme each year. This year’s theme is “Spoiler Alert.”

FilmShop members’ films have screened at festivals across the world – from Berlinale, to Dances with Films, to the Tribeca Film Festival – and have been featured in Filmmaker Magazine, The Hollywood Reporter, and The New York Times.
