Texas filmmakers come together to screen their work and raise money for the Texas Motion Picture Alliance. Founded in 2006, TXMPA serves the film, video, interactive and digital media production industry by advocating for more incentives from the state and educating people about the positive impact media production has on the economy. Scheduled to screen are a handful of short films, including two-time Independent Spirit Award nominee Bryan Poyser’s The Fickle. First created for an online series produced by the USA Network, the short follows the failed love affairs of a modern woman in one continuous take. Told through watercolor paintings and stop-motion animation, director Sai Selvarajan’s Sugarless Tea concerns two brothers separated by thousands of miles. And Squeezebox, directed by award-winning local filmmaker Sam Lerma, follows a legendary accordion player who comes across a mysterious box that changes his life. Also playing: Away with the Fairies, Peppermint, 3 Incredibly Short Films, Breaking the Curse, Peor es Nada and Empty Calories. $5-$10, 4pm Sat, Alamo Drafthouse Park North, 618 NW Loop 410, (210) 677-8500, drafthouse.com. — Kiko Martínez
