Science fiction has stoked a sense of wonder and liberation for people of color for generations. Launched by MonteVideo to showcase sci-fi and speculative films by Latinx and BIPOC filmmakers, Raza Cósmica is the signature program in our ongoing efforts to support Latinx-themed independent film screenings for underserved communities via non-traditional venues. 

This year's edition showcased films from Brazil, Colombia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, France, Peru, United Kingdom, and the United States and took place at three San Antonio venues: Arthouse at Blue Star, Central Library, and Jump-Start Performance Co.

Thank you to everyone who attended the 2023 edition of Raza Cósmica and to our community partners and sponsors, the Latino Collection and Resource Center, Mexican American Civil Rights Institute, Slab Cinema, Jump-Start Performance Co., Indie Grip, Bubbl’r, and Dulce Sueños!

Interested in sponsoring future screenings? Please email

Inspired by the real-life story of NASA flight engineer José Hernández, A Million Miles Away follows him on a decades-long journey, from a rural village in Michoacán, Mexico, to more than 200 miles above the Earth in the International Space Station. With the support of his family, José’s drive and determination culminates in the opportunity to achieve his seemingly impossible goal.
