San Antonio Film Festival

Sooner or later, San Antonio Film Festival (SAFILM) director and founder Adam Rocha thinks a hometown filmmaker will emerge to tell stories about the Alamo City, much like Spike Lee does with Brooklyn, New York, and Kevin Smith with Red Bank, New Jersey. “We want to give birth to a filmmaker from San Antonio who can do the same,” Rocha told the Current. “We want someone to tell the great stories we have here.” Celebrating its 24th year in the community, SAFILM has seen a host of local filmmakers like Ya’Ke Smith (Katrina’s Son), Bryan Ortiz (Doctor S Battles the Sex Crazed Reefer Zombies) and Eric Fonseca (Funeral March for a Marionette) compete with movies from around the world during the festival. This year, the festival, which takes place August 1-5, is no different. Rocha said the number of projects directed by San Antonio filmmakers is at one of the highest levels he’s ever seen. Some of these local films include Tía Chuck: A Portrait of Chuck Ramirez by Angela and Mark Walley; Cornyation by Dave Sims; and Mr. Zoot Suit by Chan’Cellore Makanjuola.
