Travel to San Antonio
If traveling by air to attend the 2013 Film Festival and Film Academy, it is recommended that you fly into San Antonio International Airport, just minutes from downtown San Antonio. An alternative, if needed, is the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, approximately eighty-five miles from downtown.
Getting Around San Antonio
Thanks to readily available airport shuttles, public transportation, and downtown VIA Streetcars, you might not need to rent a car for your stay in San Antonio. If you decide to lodge at a hotel in close proximity to the Henry B. González Convention Center, a hotel shuttle or taxi may be sufficient to get you from the airport to your hotel and back again. Getting around downtown is easy on foot and the VIA Streetcars are also available for 80¢ each way (click here for a route map and details). Click here for interactive maps of downtown.
