Viene Pronto: SF Latino Film Festival

Still from opening night film, Undertow

Grab your churros and some frosty cervezas and come on down to The Roxie, The Mission Cultural Center, Ichtus Gallery, and The University of San Francisco next week as the 2010 Cine+Mas SF Latino Film Festival kicks things off with its opening film on Thursday, the 16th, Undertow.  The unusual ghost-themed gay drama made waves in Sundance, receiving the audience award for best world cinematic drama and was nominated for the Grand Jury prize.  Should be muy bien.

From there, hang on to your sombreros, because this year’s line-up is filled with informative documentaries, shorts, and narrative features from over 11 countries, including Cuba, Bolivia, Brazil, Nicaragua, and Mexico.  No habla espanol?  No worries, I’m sure there will be subtitles.  Click on the jump for the festival’s complete line-up and locations
