The Santa Fe Independent Film Festival is helping bring HBO’s newest feature documentary to the Lensic Performing Arts Space. You can join producer Ilan Arboleda for the New Mexico premiere of Casting By on Wednesday, July 17, at 7 p.m. The film documents the unsung contributions of the humble casting director, iconoclasts whose “keen eye, exquisite taste and gut instincts” redefined Hollywood. Jeff Bridges, Robert De Niro, Robert Duvall, Clint Eastwood, Al Pacino, Robert Redford, Diane Lane and Woody Allen are just a few of the stars interviewed. Arboleda will take part in a post-film discussion about the crucial role of casting directors in the movie industry. The screening/discussion will take place at the Lensic (211 W. San Francisco). A VIP reception will immediately follow in the Lumpkins Ballroom at La Fonda Hotel. This event is free, but you need to RSVP by going to homeboxoffice.com in order to secure your first-come, first-served tickets.
