Top Five Things to Do in Houston This Weekend: Señorita Cinema, Macbeth, the Hot Undies Run and More

Texas's first all-Latina film festival, Señorita Cinema, returns this Friday for a weekend run with a variety of short and long flicks, all illuminating the female experience. Past installments in the festival have all been short films, founder Stephanie Saint Sanchez says, but this year, past SC winners return with their first full-length feature films, with entries from LA, Chicago and Puerto Rico, "and they are dynamite!

"Each screening has its own unique feeling to celebrate the diversity of the Latina experience," Saint Sanchez adds. "Friday night is a little wild," she says, with Delusions of Grandeur, a coming-of-age story about a girl who stops taking her psychiatric medication in San Francisco. Delusions filmmaker Iris Almarez provides her own homemade sangria for the screening. Houston poet laureate Gwendolyn Zepeda joins filmmaker Fanny Veliz at Sunday's screening of Homebound, filmed in El Campo.

See Delusions of Grandeur at 6:30 p.m. on Friday Rice Media Center, 6100 Main. Events continue at various locations through June 9. For information, visit the festival's website. $10 to $50.
