A noteworthy local film festival will soon kick into high gear. I spoke to its director, San Antonian Jim Mendiola.
“This is the 37th Annual Latino Film Festival—it’s the longest running one in the United States. We’re going to be running for eight days."
Several films are screened each night of CineFestival.
"We’ve got about 35 films this year from the US and Mexico. Documentaries, narrative films and short films.”
I asked "Are there any nights you’d describe as just must-come nights?"
