San Jose's Cinequest Film Festival (Feb 25-Mar 8) presents 200 international films with over 400 film professionals from 34 countries.

Salute documents the epic strength and wholeheartedness of Australian runner Peter Norman and SJSU athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos during the 1968 Mexico Olympics. Each man took part in a historically daring human rights demonstration, heroically protesting for black equality amidst racial discrimination and identifying San Jose as a significant contributor and forerunner in justice during the civil rights movement.
