Music + Movies—Sol Arts is accepting submissions from musicians and bands for a film/music performance concept.

Frantic Filmmaking, Part 1—The 48Hour Film Project is coming to Albuquerque July 13-15 and organizers are looking for filmmakers and volunteers. Participants will be racing around the clock to complete a seven-minute digital film in only two days. You’ll be provided with a character, a prop, a line of dialogue and a genre—the rest is up to you. The winner of this year’s competition will get to compete in the international Filmapalooza for a grand prize of $7,500. For more info, log on to

Frantic Filmmaking, Part 2—If you’re searching for even more volunteer duty in July, the annual Duke City Shootout is on the lookout for happy, motivated event volunteers to work the parties, the screenings and the Insomnia Lounge. For a minimum time commitment, you can see some great (we can only hope) films, meet cool people and be part of making this year’s Shootout a success. The Shootout will take place July 20-28 and will feature a collection of filmmakers from around the country shooting, editing and premiering a 10-minute digital film in only seven days (which, after the 48Hour Film Project sounds like a cakewalk). For more information, log on to or e-mail

Volunteer Overload—Of course, if your goal is to volunteer for every film festival Albuquerque has to offer, now is the time to get your name in to work the 5th Annual Gay & Lesbian Film Festival. The event, taking place Sept. 28-Oct. 4, is less that four months away and planning is already underway for the two-city event. If you are interested in offering your services, you can contact coordinators at The festival is looking for help planning some events prior to and during the film festival. Volunteers are needed in both Albuquerque and Santa Fe. If you’re curious, take a gander at “volunteer positions” on the festival’s website ( to see what might be best for you.
