Dirk Norris, former Outreach Programs Manager for the New Mexico Film Office, announced the creation of the New Mexico Film Foundation, a nonprofit corporation whose mission is “To help support the independent film industry in New Mexico while offering financial assistance and educational opportunities to New Mexico independent film makers.”
While the film industry continues to grow in New Mexico through the efforts of the New Mexico Film Office, programs such as the “New Visions” contract award, “Governor’s Cup” and “Film Maker Intensive,” programs designed to help New Mexico filmmakers, no longer exist. “We have a large community of independent film makers right here in New Mexico,” Norris said, “and the time is now to bring more attention to them, and offer them support.”
Once it gets funding, the New Mexico Film Foundation will offer a variety of grants aimed at helping those creative “above the line” writers, directors, producers and actors that want to tell stories through film and digital media.
