Tom Fudge: The San Diego Latino film festival keeps getting bigger. And this year it's bigger than ever with 185 films. Also this year, the festival is featuring animated movies from Latin America. Latin American film making is no longer the obscure category it once was. This year's academy awards are one illustration of how far Latin film makers have come -- with movies like Babal and Pan's Labyrinth getting wide critical acclaim. Joining me to talk about what's new at the San Diego Latino Film Festival are Ethan van Thillo and Beth Accomando.
