The Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center has announced the finalists for this year’s CineFestival, and this year’s event features more local talent than in the past.
The festival kicked off its series Tuesday with a showing of a short film reviewing Sandra Cisneros’ new book.
"We had over 100 submissions and we're probably bringing you about 42 or 43 of those," said CineFestival Curator Jimmy Mendiola.
Mendiola grew up in San Antonio but spent years making movies in California. Now, Mendiola said, is the time to be a San Antonio filmmaker.
