Starting Wednesday, Sept. 3, the 10th annual White Sands International Film Festival gets underway in Las Cruces. A collection of films from all genres, including a special focus on Latino and New Mexican films, will be screened through Sunday, Sept. 7. Events include a 48-hour film shootout, a student short film promotional contest, workshops, gala parties and screenings of more than 40 short and feature-length films. The opening night film is the shot-in-New-Mexico indie The Odd Way Home starring Rumer Willis, Chris Marquette and Brendan Sexton III. The film, directed by New Mexico State University instructor Rajeev Nirmalakhandan, is about a young runaway who teams up with an autistic man for an “inspirational journey.” Everything takes place at the Allen Cineport 10 in Las Cruces (700 S. Telshor). Festival tickets are $25 for students, $50 for general admission passes and $75 for VIP all-access passes.
