From the NM Filmmakers Program:
Greetings NM Filmmakers!
I am pleased to announce the call for submissions for our 5th annual New Visions/New Mexico Contract Awards.
The NM Filmmakers Program at the State Film Office provides this funding opportunity to independent filmmakers around the state through the support of Governor Richardson and the NM legislature. This year, we will provide a total of $100,000 toward the projects of our winning local filmmakers. Each applicant can apply for up to $20,000 for their original short, television or feature, animation, narrative, documentary or experimental project. New Visions' funding can be used towards research and development, production or post production on your film. In exchange for this funding, each winner must provide some type of professional service to the state as part of their contract (i.e. free training workshops, internships, presentations, lectures, filmmakers' screenings, etc.). Once again, we'll be conducting free informational seminars on how to prepare your New Visions proposal, open to all New Mexicans, beginning this week. All interested applicants are strongly encouraged to attend*:
This Thursday, September 2nd – 12:00-1:30pm | ALBUQUERQUE: UNM Arts Lab
Saturday, September 11th – 10:00-11:30am | SANTA FE: Center for Contemporary Arts Theatre
Wednesday, September 15th – 5:30pm | FARMINGTON: San Juan College (via Skype)
