Outreach Report
What a Weekend!
Just a reminder that our Filmmakers Experience program has two events this weekend. Attend a screening  of filmed-in-New Mexico feature Jackie, starring Holly Hunter. There will be a Q & A via Skype with Director Antoinette Beumer. See the trailer here.  Screening is this Saturday, May 18th, at 12:45PM at the Center for Contemporary Arts in Santa Fe. Last minute attendees get their tickets at the door.

Twin sisters - a prim, ambitious magazine editor (Carice van Houten, HBO's "Game of Thrones") and a warm, family-oriented housewife (real-life sibling Jelka van Houten) - travel to the American Southwest in search of the biological mother they've never met (Academy Award winner Holly Hunter). Finding her the worse for wear and living out of a battered RV, they drive their mother cross-state to a rehab center on a journey that will redefine the meaning of "family" for all of them. With beautiful cinematography, shot on location in the breathtaking desert landscapes of New Mexico, JACKIE is a fresh and heartwarming take on the classic American road movie. 
On Sunday, May 19th, our Filmmakers Experience continues with a panel discussion by Native American Filmmakers. Find out the perspective of  five local filmmakers on filmmaking in New Mexico. Panel is from 11am to 1pm at the Center for Contemporary Arts. Details here.

NM Film & Media Industry Conference
What a Great Time it was...
The New Mexico Film & Media Industry Conference was a huge success with over 50 exhibitors and more than 300 registered attendees. All 10 panel sessions were well-attended often leaving standing room only. Concrete information and nuts and bolts actions were the take-away from these dynamic sessions. 
Exhibitors were able to meet with the industry and with eachother, creating valuable relationships. "Networking" was the word of the weekend. 
In upcoming newletters, we will be sharing many of the key points made during the panel discussions.
The New Mexico Film Office will be organizing another conference next year.
