New Mexico in New York—Marcos Baca, whose short film “A Day at the Ditch” played at last year's Alibi Short Film Fiesta, recently had his latest work accepted to the upcoming New York International Film & Video Festival. “The Day the World Ended” is described as a short comedy about the Mora family and their circa 1950 adventures in the Martineztown barrio of Albuquerque. Like “A Day at the Ditch” before it, “The Day the World Ended” is a product of the Youth Development Institute's Digital Outreach and Communication Division. The film was designed as an arts in the community after-school project for children aged 6-18. Congratulations to Mr. Baca and to all the kids at YDI.

Office Work—The Albuquerque Technical Vocational Institute (TVI) Workforce Training Center (WTC) will offer a film industry training workshop, “Production Office Coordinator,” on Saturday, Oct. 15, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The six-hour class will provide an overview of filmmaking departments and production office organization and is being held in conjunction with the IATSE union local 480. Registration is $64. For more information or to register, contact Denise Gardner at 224-5200.

Galileo DiCaprio—On Sunday, Oct. 16, the Albuquerque Atheists & Freethinkers will sponsor a screening of Bertold Brecht's Galileo. This American Film Theater production of Brecht's play dramatizes Galileo's struggle to choose between his own life and his restless scientific curiosity. The screening will take place at 7 p.m. at the Albuquerque Peace & Justice Center (202 Harvard SE). There will be a discussion following the film. Organizers are asking for a $1 donation at the door to cover the cost of the hall.

Hobo-a-Go-Go—Self-described filmmaker and tramp Bill Daniel has (rather appropriately) taken to the road to show off his newly completed, 16-years-in-the-making documentary about the secret of hobo and railworker graffiti. Who is Bozo Texino? has been wowing East Coast audiences over the summer and is making its way westward this fall. Thanks to local cinemaniacs Basement Films, the tour will hit Albuquerque's Guild Cinema on Sunday, Oct. 16, at 8 p.m. Also on the bill is Saul Rouda's “Waldo Point,” a 20-minute portrait of life in a Sausalito hippie houseboat community, and Vanessa Renwick's “Britton, South Dakota,” a found-footage montage of Depression-era children. Tickets are a mere $6 at the door. For more info on the films, you can log on to
