Closing Night Party: SDLFF


Hi friends,

The San Diego Latino Film Festival had it’s Closing Night Party last night. I hadn’t been to the Closing Night Party in a few years and was glad to attend last night. We had a blast! This party was different from other Film Festival parties, it included individual musical performers, a band that  performed Mexican regional music, dancing, and even a fashion show. There was also a silent auction, food, and tequila tasting stations. The red carpet was rolled out to greet guests at the Broadway Pier Event Center, on the bay in downtown San Diego.

I sat with friends and met some new friends! We mixed and mingled, and best of all I got to catch up with a friend I hadn’t seen in a while. Overall it was a fun night! It is all about the company you are with….and I always have fun with friends!

Here are some pictures from last night’s Party! Hope you enjoy them.

Did you attend the San Diego Latino Film Festival? Were you at the party? What did you think? Share pics!

edith interview

Hi friends, it’s Friday, yay! I was looking forward to attending the San Diego Latino Film Festival today, to meet viewers at the station’s booth. I also had the opportunity to interview one of Mexico’s most famous actresses, Edith Gonzalez. I remember seeing her in novelas when I was a teenager. She also does theatre performances and films. The organizers told me Edith will be at the Festival tomorrow and Sunday, promoting the film Deseo. She was nice and gracious, just as beautiful in person as she looks on the screen.

Afterwards, we were able to catch a movie! We saw No Se Si Cortarme Las Venas O Dejarmelas Largas, a film from Mexico, with actress Ludwika Paletal (also a famous novela actress). It was fantastic, a comedy with a good story line! If you want to get a laugh and see an entertaining movie, this is a good one!

There are two days left for the Festival. Don’t miss this opportunity to watch the best movies from Latin America, Spain, & Mexico, and attend the closing night party tomorrow! Hope to see you there!
