Stock up on film

Filmstock, the innovative quad-state short film festival, starts off this Friday, Sept. 5, and Saturday, Sept. 6, right here in Albuquerque. Filmstock breezes through Denver in October, Salt Lake City in November and Tempe in December. Award-winning films from here in New Mexico will have the opportunity to screen at the other three legs of the festival, ensuring fame and fortune (maybe) for our homegrown filmmakers. This year organizers have partnered up with New Mexico Film Foundation to shine a spotlight on New Mexican actors. This will consist of a live competition featuring local actors presenting film blocks, introducing red carpet events and participating in a monologue-off. Among the shorts being screened this year are 12 past award winners and 16 new official selections. The films are organized into themed blocks—from “The Pursuit of Happiness” to “The Human Experience.” Individual tickets to the programming blocks are running $10 apiece. All-access passes, which include all festival events as well as the filmmaker reception at Villa di Capo Ristorante Italiano, are $40 each. Films will be shown at the KiMo Theatre (423 Central NW) starting at 7pm on Friday and 11am on Saturday.
