Five films to see during the XicanIndie Film Fest's quinceañera celebration

Su Teatro's XicanIndie Film Festival, now in its fifteenth year, is a pure distillation of what the Chicano culture center offers on its stages all year long. That almost guarantees a curated whirlwind of diverse Latin-American films, filmmaker appearances, parties and world-class live performances, all in the space of four days. But it also means there won't be a boring moment, and that music and humor will be part of the package.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
