                            In its 20th year, SA Film continues to mature with some exciting new features. While festival director Adam Rocha will bring back the fest’s collection of feature films, shorts and documentaries along with panels, workshops (in partnership with the Texas Film Commission) and parties, most of the events go down at the Southside City Base Cinema. For Rocha, the “very choice,” locally owned theater perfectly reflects the Festival’s commitment to improving SA’s homegrown film industry. Standout films include hard-hitting doc Jose Canseco: The Truth Hurts, cancer dramedy Isn’t It Delicious and Daniel Baldwin’s locally shot The Wisdom to Know the Difference (Baldwin will be in attendance), plus dozens of shorts and recent work from some of SA’s best filmmakers. This year unveils a brunch awards ceremony at NAO as well. As Rocha mused in a recent interview: “Isn’t the battle cry of all local musicians, ‘support the local music scene’? That’s also our battle cry: ‘Go watch a film.’” For a full schedule, visit safilm.com.

                            Likened by Robin Williams to “Prozac with a head,” vertically challenged Orange County comic Brad Williams is possibly best known for the sketch characters he’s played on Mind Of Mencia, which include a whore dwarf (“whorf”) and the leader of an all-dwarf basketball team.

                            There seem to be two kinds of comedy fans in 2014: those to whom a Chelsea Lately credit is a come-on and those to whom it’s a warning flag. In the case of Josh Wolf, this binary proves as dumb as most. Though at 40-plus he looks every bit the Mannish Boy Frat Daddy, and his style—confidently delivered observations about sex and other bodily functions (what before the ’90s alt/club split was commonly known as “comedy”)—is definitely panel-ready, his actual life experiences as a single dad give his material and outlook a broader appeal than any niche he might appear to fit.

                            With a nod to exquisite corpse, “You Are Here” highlights a collaboration between Tim Kerr and Brian Phillips. Kerr studied painting and photography at UT–Austin and played a key role in Texas’ early punk scene as a founding member of Big Boys and other bands. Louisiana native Phillips illustrates his mantra “One man’s junk pile is another man’s art supplies” with puzzle-like constructions built from reclaimed wood. A tribute to inspiring icons, the duo’s joint project involved Kerr painting portraits of Rosa Parks, Evel Knievel and many more on surfaces pieced together by Phillips.

                            While most mainstream rappers like to color in the lines with rhymes covering cash, drugs, misogyny and more drugs, Atlanta’s Rittz stays on target, putting a fresh spin on tired topics. With a tongue-in-cheek name to poke fun at his whiteness, Rittz’ self-deprecating lyrics get outside the material goods and name drops of modern rap, while retaining a certain radio catchiness. As both an emcee and a tattoo artist, Taylor Gang member Tuki Carter has a bold understanding of two art forms and cultures with crossover influence on each other. Sweeping theatrical scores play backdrop to Raz Simone’s powerful raps. Although the instrumentals are subtle, its impact on the poetry in motion is on a grand scale.
