When: Wednesdays-Saturdays. Continues through Feb. 28 2015
After its kickoff Saturday with the premier of Hector Galán’s doc Children of Giant, the 37th annual CineFestival continues through Saturday. Among the fest’s remaining highlights are Sam Lerma’s thriller Squeezebox ($7 p.m. Wed), Malik Vitthal’s drama Imperial Dreams (6 p.m. Thu) and Alfredo De Villa’s Fugly!, an anti-romantic comedy starring John Leguizamo. Originally set to be CineFestival’s guest of honor, Leguizamo pulled out due to a scheduling conflict but spoke to the Current earlier this month about issues addressed in the film, including stereotypes Latino actors face in Hollywood.
