Looks like there’ll be at least a couple interesting indie films featuring our part of the country at the 14th annual San Diego Film Festival, which runs for five days, starting September 30. One of them, Diablo, is a thriller set in what would soon become Colorado soon after the Civil War. (Okay, it was filmed in Alberta, but that’s the West too.) This world premiere stars Scott Eastwood (you-know-who’s son), but we’re even more happy to see Walton Goggins back in harness as a ruthless yet magnetic bad guy. We missed you, Boyd.

The second is The Rocky Mountains Traverse. Unlike Diablo, it’s a documentary (part of a TV series produced by Red Bull). Like Diablo, it’s a nail biter of a story, in which our two paragliding protagonists try to break the long-distance paragliding record—while, for some lunatic reason, crossing the Rocky Mountains. What could possibly go wrong?
