The  San Antonio Film Festival (SAFILM) has their festival dates set for June 17th – 23rd, but prior to the festival, they will collaborate with the Austin Film Festival for a free event on June 8th from 6 – 9pm in downtown San Antonio at Geekdom, 112 E Pecan St. San Antonio, TX 78205, on the 11th Floor of the Westin Centre Building. The event is free to the public and will showcase San Antonio’s favorite monster – the zombie – with live zombie make-up demonstrations by one of the top special effects make-up artists in the city, Altered Vision Studios. Following the demonstration, there will be a screening of a handpicked zombie film, ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction.
