SAN FRANCISCO, CA, February 1—Bay Area film group, Cine+Mas, opens its 10th annual call for entries. Feature length, shorts, narrative, and documentary films made by, with or about Latin Americans are invited to submit. The 10th anniversary addition of the San Francisco Latino Film Festival takes place September 14-30.

The mission of San Francisco Latino Film Festival is to provide a platform for films made by US Latino, Latin American, or Iberian filmmakers–as well as films by and about Latinos. We showcase films with a distinctly Latin American/Latino experience or point of view. Cultural activities like our community festival connects us to each other locally and across borders.

The community event series showcases film from the Americas at multiple Bay Area theaters throughout September

Those who would like to sponsor, host, or participate in upcoming events can contact a Cine+Mas representative directly at info [at] sflatinofilmfestival [dot] com.
