The nation’s original and longest running Latino film festival returns this summer with the 43rd annual edition of CineFestival San Antonio. Presented by the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, San Antonio’s annual celebration of independent Latinx and indigenous cinema will take place July 6 to 10, 2022. 

CineFestival San Antonio has developed a strong focus on local and regional filmmaking, prioritizing films that are closely related to Texas and San Antonio, supporting regional filmmakers who are based in neighboring states, and also including works made by Latinx and indigenous filmmakers working in the US and Puerto Rico. Limited to screening time capacity, the festival also includes international work made by filmmakers from Latin America and Spain with an emphasis on Mexican films.
