Join host Charles Horak as he welcomes Angie Reza Tures, Executive Director of Femme Frontera to discuss the Femme Frontera Showcase of high-quality films from around the world.

For the eighth year, the Latine-led Borderland Film Advocacy group Femme Frontera will be celebrating important film work by women and non-binary filmmakers from the region and around the world. The Femme Frontera Filmmaker Showcase began as a celebration of films that challenge perceptions about women, border communities, immigrants, people of color, LGBTQ+, and other underrepresented communities.

Charles Horak didn't sleep much as a child, preferring instead to watch movies on late night TV. Not much has changed since then, except that he now shares his life-long passion for movies with others. Horak's association with On Film began in the summer of 2002 when he was interviewed by the show's originator, Cynthia Haines. In the summer of 2005, Horak took over for Haines as host of the show.
