Film festivals give filmmakers, actors and screenwriters the opportunity to show their talent to an audience ready to see something unique— for a local film festival, it is important to give them the exposure. The 22nd annual San Antonio Film Festival (SAFILM) is ready to reel in at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts July 25 through July 31. There will be many opportunities including 145 feature-length and short films in downtown San Antonio. “We have people from the film industry flying from France, Italy and Yugoslavia, slowly making this an international film festival,” Executive Director of SAFILM Adam Rocha told La Prensa “We had over 1,000 entrees from the film industry who wanted a slot in our festival. There is two rounds, so the films are seen by several judges around the country through an online submission process.”
