The big question of the weekend: Ravens or 49ers? About 111 million people watch the Super Bowl every year; no doubt at least some of those are Albuquerqueans! But if you want a little break from football, there are plenty of other events happening this weekend in our city:

Take some time tomorrow or Sunday to meet filmmaker/ journalist Charlie Minn from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Digital Arts and Technology Academy. Minn will lead an intense discussion on his documentaries and how he has made himself stand out in the documentary filmmaking world. Enjoy a free breakfast and lunch, filmmaking workshops and the chance for one-on-one discussions. Tickets start at $75 and sales end one hour before the event.

The Harlem Globetrotters will be shooting hoops at the Santa Ana Star Center tomorrow night at 7 p.m. for the “You Write the Rules” 2013 World Tour. Entertaining fans from 120 countries around the world, the Globetrotters are giving you the chance to add a new rule to Globetrotters basketball by logging onto their website and voting. Now the fans call the shots! Tickets start at $21.75.

Head to the KiMo Theatre on Sunday at 2 p.m. for “The Pharaoh’s Daughter,” a resurrected ballet that illustrates the journey of a young English Lord traveling through Egypt. Originally a hit in 1862, this ballet is back and more popular than ever, starring Svetlana Zakharova and Ruslan Skvortsov. Admission is between $12-$15.
