Lovers of film take note: The San Antonio Film Festival happens July 28-August 3.

“It’s seven days of cinema. We have about 70-plus films, and about half the filmmakers will be in attendance," said Adam Rocha, executive director of the festival.

Noting that the festival is in its 20th year, I noted that the festival is no longer a teenager. He laughed and continued.

“This is our 20th anniversary; it’s growing, growing, growing," Rocha said. "And I can’t wait. I’m looking forward to the next 20.”

  "Comedy Warriors," one of the most meaningful movies in this year’s San Antonio Film Festival, presents the stories of our nation’s war heroes in a comedy, a method that has been the key to healing for more than one wounded warrior.

After his experiences in Iraq, narrow grocery-store aisles cause Bobby Henline to freeze up. He can’t think and he starts looking for a way out, but the former 82nd Airborne soldier has no trouble on a wide-open stage telling humorous stories to audiences.
