If you're an Errol Flynn fan, or even if you have no idea who that is, I highly recommend giving In Like Flynn a peek. The film follows Flynn before he became a star in Hollywood, specifically on his search for gold in Papua New Guinea. It's filled to the brim with action, from daring escapes to fist fights, and has quite the story as well. It's being released on VOD next week, so definitely give it a peek when you can.
If you enjoy horror movies with a twist go check out the SOUL TO KEEP trailer! The plot seems pretty original but underlying message of inclusion is what I found interesting. I saw a review on Horror Fuel that really summarized how I felt during the trailer. "It’s not so much that the lead character in the film is deaf, it’s the fact that the hearing characters use sign language to communicate with her... it shows how a social group of both hearing and deaf can exist as one". I'm 100% pre-ordering it on iTunes, but I recommend checking out the trailer if you haven't yet!
Hello! I am working on this project with Jennifer Nash. Please take a look at our trailer, and share it if you like it. We may also need some help or volunteers for future episodes 🙂 Unpaid interns or for school credits!
Students filming their first short of the year
Hey guys! If you're a fan of movies like #ThePurge then you won't want to miss out on #TheNightEatsTheWorld. This film follows Sam as he hides, fights back against and tries to survive in a Parisian zombie apocalypse. Watch today on VOD!
If anyone's looking for incredible documentary work, make sure to check out Paige Goldberg Tolmach's What Haunts Us. The film follows the Porter Gaud Sexual Abuse scandal over the course of thirty years, and provides in great detail the terrifying nature of the events themselves. I cannot stress how impactful the project is, and I hope many of you take the time to engage something so relevant in today's times.
Hey everyone, I just saw #HuntingEmma a new South African action thriller and I highly recommend it. The tension is palpable throughout the entire film and kept me engaged the entire time. Anyone looking to explore more contemporary foreign films should watch this movie.
Hey San Antonio film students! Looking to catch a thrilling new movie? You won't want to miss out on the film #AgendaPayback! Check it out on VOD on May 29th to see the suspense unfold as we follow the story of man seeking revenge against another.

Congrats to our film student, Fatima Aguillon on her big win! She brought home the first International Award for Film School of San Antonio at Harlandale! Congrats Fatima! Harlandale High School is orud of you.

OUTSTANDING San Antonio film news coming from the OVPM OWHC OCPM's World Congress in the Republic of Korea last night (yesterday morning in Korea). Fatima Aguillon, a 17-year-old Harlandale ISD senior and a student at the Film School of San Antonio at Harlandale​, is the worldwide winner of the organization's International Video Production Competition!

Fatima took the top spot in the 14-17 age group, competing against 15 entries from 13 other countries including Spain, Mexico, Turkey, Indonesia and Ecuador.

The contest asked young filmmakers living in UNESCO World Heritage destinations to create short films that showcase their cities and World Heritage sites. Her three-minute film was shown during the announcement at World Congress yesterday and she will receive a $1,000 cash prize from the OWHC.

The journey to Aguillon’s international achievement began in San Antonio, with the Film Commission and City of San Antonio World Heritage Office partnering to present a local “My City, Our World Heritage” contest as required by the international contest and to further develop San Antonio’s film culture as addressed in the City of San Antonio’s Film Strategic Plan. We conducted a Call for Entries, collected eligible submissions, coordinated an evaluation panel, and worked with Mission Marquee Plaza to develop an awards ceremony and screening. Fatima won the local competition in her age group and received a cash prize of $1,000 and we entered her film into the OWHC’s worldwide contest to be judged by an international panel.

This incredible achievement is not only a testament of Fatima's talent in filmmaking, but also to the strength of our film industry as a whole. We look forward to continuing to work with schools like Harlandale to help develop San Antonio's film culture and talent.

In the meantime, take three minutes to watch the award-winning film and CONGRATULATIONS FATIMA!


We’re at the 24th Annual Austin Film Festival for the next couple of days. Soaking in film and screenwriting advice from industry professionals.
