From fest director, Adam Rocha:
This ain’t Hollywood, this ain’t Sundance…it’s the San Antonio Underground Film Festival. Yes, we're back, kicking and screaming from the dead, and this year the SAUFF will premiere at two new locations: the renovated Aztec on the River and the newly constructed Jean Longwith Radio, Television and Film Building
at San Antonio College.
During this year’s three-day event, audiences can see 62 independent films from around the globe. The SAUFF has existed as an indie filmmaker’s showcase for the past dozen years and we want to celebrate lucky No. 13 in style.
