SHOP 'N' SCREEN. Forget spring cleaning: Come April, the City of Brotherly Love's all about spring buying, hosting the pedigreed Philadelphia Antiques Show ( April 9-12) and the more avant-garde Philadelphia Furniture & Furnishings Show (April 15-17). Not a shopper? More than 60,000 movie lovers are expected for the 250-plus flicks at the Philadelphia Film Festival ( April 7-20). Join Steve Buscemi and plenty of unknowns for screenings, trivia and PhillyPitch, where 10 pre-selected screenwriters have their shot.

About two hours from the Beltway at various venues in Philadelphia. Admission for antiques: $15, 215-387-3500, www.philaantiques.com. Furniture: $12, 215-440-0718, www.pffshow.com. Film: Tickets vary, 215-733-0608, www.phillyfests.com.
