Sundance offshoot planted in New Mexico

-A A +A
By Roger Snodgrass

SANTA FE – Lead actor and producer/director Robert Redford is determined to help Native American and Hispanic filmmakers and New Mexico is more than happy to join in.

Gov. Richardson and Redford announced an alliance Thursday that will, for now, be called Sundance in New Mexico. Redford founded the Sundance Institute in Utah in 1981, where it has become a world-famous center for developing and showcasing independent film production.

Sundance in New Mexico will be based at Los Luceros, a restored hacienda and cultural facility on the Rio Grande north of Española. The property was purchased by the state last year but has been underused.

“This marks a new level of commitment on the part of Bob Redford and my administration in supporting the underrepresented voices in our culture, to job creation and the arts and to the power of partnerships built on mutual goals and aspirations,” Richardson said.

Redford said his relationship with New Mexico began during trips through the state on his way to Austin, Texas, as a boy.

“My own personal history and love for the state goes many, many years back,” Redford said. “‘Milagro Beanfield Wars’ was the first chance to put something behind my love for the state.”
