For more than 20 years, Alamo Community Group's mission has been to develop and manage affordable housing in San Antonio and Bexar County. Now, as a way to give back and further support the community, its House Our Heroes 5K helps provide safe and stable housing to veterans who have experienced homelessness; proceeds from the race also supply them with financial assistance and an extensive roster of services and support. While being cheered on by volunteers and local celebrities, runners circle Woodlawn Lake Park, an 100-year-old natural oasis in San Antonio.

Since the first ballet shoe touched down on its floor in 1966, Studio 10 Dance Center has fostered the talents of many students, and many of these students went on to develop successful dance careers. The seriousness and professionalism that readies these students is due in large part to Pat Holbrook. Holbrook has owned for the studio for more than four decades and served as its artistic director for almost two. She's danced with the Texas Civic Ballet Company and the New York Opera, choreographed for myriad musicals, and served as a judge in renowned competitions. She's incredibly active in the dance community, but in her own words, "Studio 10 Dance Center is not just a business to Pat. It is her life!"

Festival-goers literally never stop between viewings, keeping busy while meeting some of the filmmakers, soaking in words of wisdom from panelists, and participating in workshops.
