The festival will continue with the screening of 34 films, along with a master class in script writing, an awards ceremony honoring actor Jesse Borrego (“Fame,” “Dexter”) for his contributions to the film industry and a panel discussion on “The Latino Image in Hollywood.”
The event will end with a closing night awards celebration that will feature mariachis, Mexican Folklorico dancers and a tribute to Mexican film stars Pedro Infante and Cantinflas.
