SF LATINO FILM FESTIVAL SETS LOCATIONS, SEEKS COLLABORATORS

The SF Latino Film Festival is gearing up for its 8th annual September events, celebrating independent film from the Americas and Europe. Our goal is to showcase film by, about, or made with Latinos—to shine a light on inclusion. Other films are presented to expose our innovative and influential Bay Area audiences to popular foreign film as a way to celebrate cultural differences.

The festival committee invites collaborators to sponsor, host, and contribute content to our upcoming events. Venues on the confirmed schedule include the following Bay Area locations.

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema – New Mission 2550 Mission St, San Francisco, CA 94110

Robert Rodriguez in THE BLACK MAMBA

Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez

For the first time in our film recollection, veteran filmmaker Robert Rodriguez appears in one of his films – his short  about Kobe Bryant titled THE BLACK MAMBA.

The short film for Nike also stars Danny Trejo, Kobe Bryant, Kanye West, Bruce Willis and some wicked looking basketball beasts.

Here it is in its entirety. Enjoy!
