Dallas Latino Film Festival

Dallas’ Vistas Latino Film Festival is celebrating its eleventh annual appearance with a great line up of Latin American films and visits from several of the minds and faces behind them.  Vistas runs from October 28th through the 31st and showcases some of the best recent Latino film of recent years.  The Mexican omnibus film, Revolucion opens the festival on October 28th at the Angelika Film Center at Mockingbird Station.  This is Revolucion’s US debut and stars Jaime Camil, Blanca Soto, Alejandra Barros, Liz Gallardo, Adal Ramones, Alejandra Ambrosi, Pedro Armendariz, Jr., Jeannine Derbez, Gustavo Sanchez-Parra, Humberto Busto, Erik del Castillo, and Maria Soleno will be in attendance, it should be a fun night!  Twitch readers will probably recognize Seres: Genesis among the films being screened this year.  The film opened a couple of weeks ago in Mexico and is getting good notices, this could be a new landmark in Latin American Sci-fi, which has not been a big seller south of the border historically.  Passes for the festival are available and very affordable.  Follow the link at the bottom for more information.  I’ll try to keep you guys updated with more info about the features and hopefully some advance reviews to whet your appetites!  Watch this space!
