1.  The Dallas International Film Festival opens Thursday, March 30, and continues until April 9. Films include “I am Not Madame Bovary,” a Chinese film about divorce and the state of women in China, and the less serious “Cheer Up,” a film about Finnish cheerleaders who travel to Texas, directed by Canadian filmmaker Christy Garland. International, indeed. Prices vary, but start at $10 for students and educators with valid ID.

2.  This weekend, Lowest Greenville Collective presents Experience Lowest Greenville, featuring different specials at the eclectic restaurants, cafés and other shops along Lowest Greenville Avenue. Times and prices vary; check Lowest Greenville Collective’s Facebook event for more details.

3.  The Dallas Symphony Chorus and the Children’s Chorus of Greater Dallas will perform Bach’s St. Matthew Passion at the Meyerson Symphony Center, beginning Thursday night with a performance at 7:30, with shows continuing until Sunday. Tickets start at $19.

4.  Saturday night, head to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History for Science on Tap: Cheers to Science and History from 6-10. There will be lots of food and a cash bar, with plenty of activities. $15 for members, $20 for non-members. You’ll want to buy your tickets in advance to get a free drink voucher; you can do so at the museum’s website.

5.  LUCK in Trinity Groves will host another of its popular beer pairing events on Sunday, this one matching Donuts and Beer. There will be three different seatings — 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. $18.

6.  The Dallas Theatre Center is putting on an outdoor showing of Electra beginning Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. on Strauss Square. Currently, these tickets are sold out, but you can try for other nights at the same time, though you should hurry: seats are going fast. Starting at $20.
