Daniel Salazar on the XicanIndie Film Festival, opening tomorrow

In his tenth year as curator of the XicanIndie Film Festival, Daniel Salazar decided to revamp the whole project. Working with film programmers from all over the Americas, Salazar created the Encuentro Mundial de Cine, an international curatorial collaboration using digital platforms to broaden the pool of films available to screen. In advance of the festival opening on Thursday, April 3, Westword spoke with Salazar about his global, curatorial collaboration.
