For the final day of feminist film festival les Filministes, a double-header of film screenings are taking place at Artgang beginning with a series of shorts from Quebec and around the world, followed by the Quebec premiere of Chicago-based director Rebecca Parrish’s 2015 documentary Radical Grace, the story of three feminist nuns pushing for progressive change within the Catholic church. 6524 St-Hubert, screening 1 at 5 p.m., screening 2 at 7:30 p.m., $9/$7 in advance

There’s a lot going on at l’Escogriffe today, starting with the Plateau venue’s weekly Sunday Pasta Party featuring music from rootsy singer-songwriter L’il Andy plus a helping of the pasta-of-the-week available in meat or veggie options, followed by a nighttime concert from electro-folk trio Dear Criminals in a special appearance to commemorate the bar’s 18th anniversary. 4461 St-Denis, Pasta Party from 5–8 p.m., $12, Dear Criminals show at 9 p.m., $20/$15 in advance
