77. Submerge Yourself In Latin Cinema At CineFestival

Its focus has shifted a bit in the last couple of years since new festival director Jim Mendiola has taken the reins (more U.S. Latino filmmakers, fewer Latin American), but it seems the longest-running Latino film festival in North America knows what it has to do to stay relevant in the circuit. That includes working with the Sundance Institute to support Latino writers/filmmakers through the Latino Screenwriting Project. In the past, CineFestival has screened some impressive work, including films that played at Sundance (Cesar's Last Fast) and Cannes (The Golden Dream). The festival has also welcomed a host of Latino talent to the Alamo City like 2015 Golden Globe winner Gina Rodriguez, Esai Morales, and Benjamin Bratt.
