A former editor of the Los Alamos Monitor said Monday that the Hollywood system for making movies is collapsing under its own weight.Now director of the Santa Fe Film Festival that he founded, Jon Bowman said many feature films turned out by major studies have budgets that rival the gross national product of third world countries.“Even when these projects are well managed, it’s hard for smaller and really creative talent to surface,” he said. “Film festivals are a safety net to catch things that would otherwise be lost.”With a major focus on independent filmmakers, the Santa Fe Film Festival, to be held Nov. 28-Dec. 2, has stuck to its guns and held onto a vision that Bowman had from the beginning, said Stephen Rubin the festival’s deputy director.Going on eight years now, the destination film festival has never lost sight of some local values that have universal significance. Themes like stick-your-neck-out art, ethnic cultures and mavericks who made it have blended together into a unique and authentic experience.
