Another weekend means another insurmountable list of possibilities when it comes to things to do. Here are our five top picks for how to spend your duo of days off.

5. Phoenix Film Festival @ Harkins Scottsdale 101
With a stellar lineup of more than 160 independent flicks, including shorts, documentaries, foreign, and feature films, Phoenix Film Festival kicked off Thursday night and continues through April 5.

On our must-see movies list there's With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story, FDR: American Badass, and locally-filmed Queens of Country, the subject of this week's cover story.

Screenings will take place throughout the weekend at Harkins Scottsdale 101. Tickets to single screenings are $12, and passes of varying inclusiveness range from $35 to $300 with discounts available for students. See more here.

4. L.E.A.P. Performance Showcase @ Mesa Arts Center
Dig a dance party? Friday's L.E.A.P. showcase at Mesa Arts Center isn't your typical club bumping bash. Instead the show features more than eight dance companies including CONDER/dance, MarioCo., and Dulce. Pros and auditioned dancers take to the stage at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15. See more here.
