CineFestival is currently accepting entries for Latino features, shorts, documentaries, animation, experimental films, and youth projects for its 31st annual festival to be held February 5-8 at the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center (1300 Guadalupe; Entry fees are $30 for feature films, $25 for shorts, and $20 for students.

If you were one of those kids who finished his science-fair project on the way to school, though, consider entering the San Antonio 48 Hour Film Experience (, which is registering teams until 6 p.m. Friday, December 5.
