SAINT ANTHONY – The San Antonio Film Festival returns with more than 200 films at the downtown Radius Center.
At the festival you can watch documentaries, feature films and works of San Antonians.
“We’re celebrating 28 years of cinema in San Antonio. It’s kind of like Sundance in San Antonio,” said Adam Rocha, executive director and founder of the San Antonio Film Festival.
Jose Raul Corres is excited to share his film in his hometown.
“It’s a dream because being accepted by your peers is much better than being accepted by someone else,” said Corres.
After each film screening, audience members will have the opportunity to hear from filmmakers who are from Texas and around the world.
Sam Punto traveled from Germany to screen his film this weekend entitled “The Holding Room”.
“I have family from the area so coming here is really great. It feels very personally welcoming. So, yes, I’m excited to be here,” Punto said.
From mystery to comedy, there’s something for everyone.
“There are more humanistic stories. They are more touching. There are more love stories. Film enthusiasts. Passionate actors,” said Rocha.
The festival takes place throughout the week until Sunday. You can go to her website by clicking here.
