Cinematographer and San Antonio native Steve Acevedo had already bought his plane ticket to Austin from his home in Los Angeles. His film Coded Bias, on which he served as the director of photography, was scheduled to screen five times during the festival.
“I was really looking forward to coming home for the week,” Acevedo told the Current when it broke the news to him this afternoon. “At least we were able to screen it at Sundance, but I’m pretty bummed.”As recently as Tuesday, though, San Antonio musical acts said they were prepared to show up and perform their showcases.
