Still recovering from SXSW? Take a quick breath, then start gearing up for this weekend's Austin Jewish Film Festival. Pause for brief siesta, then it's time to look toward Cine Las Americas, which just announced its opening and closing night films.
The 15th Annual Cine Las Americas International Film Festival runs from April 24-29. The fest, which highlights films from North, South, Central, and Latin America, will open with Gonzalo Justiniano’s ¿Alguien Ha Visto A Lupita? (Have You Seen Lupita?), which was partially shot in Austin, and close with Selton Mello’s O Palhaço (The Clown) on Sunday, April 29. Special early bird badges are available until April 6 for $65.
