Gay For (No) Pay--Organizers are gearing up for the 2006 Southwest Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, taking place right here in Albuquerque on Sept. 29-Oct. 5.

Are you a graphic designer? Do you have experience in fundraising? Or marketing? Are you just a film fanatic who wants to get his or her hands dirty? Volunteer coordinators, event planners, venue managers, print traffic coordinators, festival photographers and tons more positions are in need of filling. To sign up, just e-mail volunteer@closetcinema.org or call 243-1870. Log on to www.closetcinema.org/get_involved_volunteer.htm for a complete list of volunteer opportunities.

Movies in the Mountains--Summer heat got you down? Why not head to the movies ... in the cool environs of Taos, NM? The Taos Center for the Arts (133 Paseo del Pueblo Norte) is hosting a summer movie series featuring some possibly overlooked indie gems. If you’re in the mood for a road trip up into the mountains of northern New Mexico this summer, it might be worth your time to check ’em out. On Sun., July 23 (2 p.m.), and Mon./Tues., July 24/25 (7 p.m.), it’s the British comedy Kinky Boots. On Sun., July 30 (2 p.m.), and Mon./Tues., July 31/Aug. 1, it’s the minimalist Mexican slacker comedy Temporada de Patos (Duck Season). On Sun. Aug. 6 (2 p.m.) and Mon./Tues., Aug. 7/8 (7 p.m.), it’s the high school-set film noir Brick. On Sun., Aug 12 (2 p.m.), and Mon./Tues., Aug. 14/15 (7 p.m.), it’s the film version of Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion. Tickets are $7 general admission and $6 for TCA members or students with ID. Box office opens 45 minutes prior to screening time. For more info, log on to www.taoscenterforthearts.org.
