  • Requests with less than 3 business days notice cannot be processed.

  • Certain restrictions apply, and in some instances, security and personnel fees may be required.
  • Please contact the NM Film Office for more information and to submit requests.


Filming and scouting requests for buildings operated by NM Department of Corrections (including Old Main) go directly through the department and not the NM Film Office.
