    Attended the OKCine Latino 10th Film Festival and it was a memorable experience :)

    The festival director, Rogelio, and his team were very welcoming and communicative— inviting to their mixers and events. The local members of the community and filmmakers were present at the opening night screening at The Yale and the films were great! All good vibes good people and great audience!

    I know this festival will grow even bigger and I hope to be invited to OKC again.

    Thank you OKCine!
