It all begins Friday. Film entries screen Saturday at the Palace Theater in
downtown Seguin. Admission is $3 for the general public and $2 for students
and seniors for each block of films. $10 will get you in to all the films,
excluding the "Sound of Music" sing-a-long.
Entries have come from as far away as Los Angeles, Alabama and North
Carolina and, of course, from San Antonio, an increasing hotbed of budding film

documentary _"Ennis Does Southtown_

irreverence. Estrada portrays a lactose intolerant, vegetarian, gay cowboy loose
