Magnificent Start

¡Cine Magnifico!, Albuquerque’s homegrown Latino Film Festival, hits the National Hispanic Cultural Center Sept. 4 through 8 with loads of documentaries, features and short films. We’ll have a rundown of the various films in next week’s paper. But it all kicks off this coming Wednesday, Sept. 4, with a VIP opening reception at the NHCC (1701 Fourth Street SW) starting at 6pm. Join organizers and audience members for tapas and drinks before the opening night film, Black is Beltza. That animated film comes from Spain and relates the true story of artists/puppeteers from San Fermin, who came to America in 1965 to participate in a New York City parade, only to come face-to-face with America’s racial problems. Admission is $10 general or $8 students and seniors. You can grab tickets in advance at cinemagnifico.com.
