Hey Everyone – You may not know this but last January I was a consultant at the first ever Latino Film Festival in Indio, CA! And while there, I saw a very funny film, called I’M NOT LIKE THAT NO MORE!” – which I recommended to the SD Latino Film Festival . The film will be screened Friday night at 9:45pm at the Hazard Center UltraStar Theatre. The film was written and directed by CHRISTIAN SESMA (an SDSU grad who now resides in Palm Springs) – and features a cast of some hilarious Latino actors including PAUL RODRIGUEZ who may be there in person! The theater was Sold Out in Palm Springs – so I recommend you get your tickets in advance – at least a few hours before the screening – or call me and I’ll pick up a ticket for you (I’ll be there in the early evening). After the film, we could all go out to the DoubleTree next door or to the Third Corner! Note – This is a bawdy comedy about a very dysfunctional but loving modern day Latino family!
If you haven’t been to the Festival yet – you should attend. Saw a wonderful film last night, EL ESTUDIANTE – one of the best films about teaching I’ve ever seen! And met the author of the film. GREAT TIME! Saturday night – you can catch a film and attend the CLOSING NIGHT PARTY at the U.S. Grant – it will be a blast – it always is!
