The third annual New Mexico Film Festival hits the UNM Valencia Campus in Tome-Los Lunas on Thursday, Feb. 27. The film-filled event will take place in the school’s SCC Building screening room (280 La Entrada Road in Los Lunas) and is free to the public. The day-long festival kicks off at 8:30am and continues though 6:30pm. Among the highlights is the New Mexico-made family drama Tiger Eyes (based on the semi-autobiographical book by Judy Blume), which starts at 10:30am. At 5pm it’s the award-winning documentary Tapia (about troubled Albuquerque boxer Johnny Tapia). In between, we get a wide sampling of shorts and features, including the animated fable “Wolf Dog Tales” (featuring the music of local fave Robert Mirabal). For those interested in a deeper look at the state of our state’s film industry, a panel discussion featuring filmmakers, Albuquerque Film Office liaison Ann Lerner, local film historian Jeff Berg and New Mexico Film Foundation founder Dirk Norris starts at 2:30pm. For more information or help with directions, call 925-8600.
