HOST INTRO: The first San Diego Film Awards took place recently in an effort to bring attention to filmmaking. There was not a category for best feature film but that might change if more films like 5 Hour Friends are shot in San Diego. The film opens Friday at Reading Gaslamp and AMC Theaters. It was written and produced by longtime San Diego resident Ron Jackson. KPBS arts reporter Beth Accomando sat down with Jackson in his downtown condo along with director Theo Davies to talk about filmmaking in San Diego.
