COVID-19

To the Film and Television Community,

Film and television production has been delayed globally due to COVID-19 and we are certainly feeling the effects here in New Mexico.  Our film and television industry is a cornerstone of New Mexico’s economy, and we have thousands of people, whose lives and livelihoods are dependent upon, and rooted in production.  Though this is an incredibly challenging time, we believe in the power of social distancing and other preventative measures, as ordered by Governor Lujan-Grisham, in order to stop the spread of COVID-19, and to ultimately, save lives. 

New Mexico was named the inaugural HotSpot of 2020 by Deadline Hollywood and looking ahead, New Mexico’s future has never looked more bright.  We will remain a premier production hub and continue to grow into an even more robust end-to-end production ecosystem. 

Along with our world-class crew base, gorgeous locations and competitive incentive, will be ready for you when our world is once again, production-ready.

We look forward to working with you.

Director, New Mexico State Film Office

“The film and television industry is important to diversify New Mexico’s economy,” Cabinet Secretary Alicia J. Keyes said. “The state is doing everything we can to find the resources to help these workers.”

“Assistance funds are in place and we want our industry workforce to be aware of what’s available and apply if they are eligible,” said New Mexico Film Office Director, Amber Dodson.
