SAFILM has also added a SATURDAY NIGHT Texas Premiere to the schedule with the feature film, MILLENNIUM BUGS by Texas-born Writer/Director Alejandro Montoya Marin at 6:00pm, including a 90s-themed party to celebrate the premiere.

  • MILLENNIUM BUGS by Writer/Director Alejandro Montoya Marin – Saturday, August 7, 6:00pm 

Both an homage to 90’s films and the indie film revolution of the time, MILLENNIUM BUGS is a love letter to a generation that found themselves on the cusp of a technological revolution that was both exciting and uncharted. This film speaks to anyone who has ever felt broken, pressured, or lost and carries with the universal and timeless desire for good friends, good laughs, and great tunes. https://millenniumbugsfilm.com/
