Anisotropic magnetoresistance (AMR) and the planar Hall effect (PHE) have garnered increasing attention as probes of the chiral anomaly in Dirac and Weyl semimetals, or helical surface states in topological insulators. However, these techniques are sensitive to additional effects, such as orbital magnetoresistance, and a more detailed understanding of such contributions is needed. Here, we measure AMR and the PHE in thin films of the antiperovskite Sr3SnO grown by molecular beam epitaxy. Sr3SnO is predicted to host both massive 3D Dirac fermions and topological surface states protected by mirror symmetry. We investigate the dependence of AMR and the PHE on magnetic field, temperature and film thickness, as well as their relationship to weak (anti)localization.
