Worlds Collide

Two Worlds, an Albuquerque festival of Native American theater and film, is looking for a team of 10 to 15 American Indian filmmakers, 18 and older, to work together on the development, scripting and production of a 10-minute film that will premiere Aug. 23 during the festival at Albuquerque’s VSA North Fourth Art Center. The film also will be shown at the third annual Creative Spirit screening in Los Angeles on Sept. 27. Although some background in film production is preferred, it’s not necessary to be a professional or experienced filmmaker to be part of the team. Training will be provided by mentors and high-tech equipment will be available. Workshops start in July with the development and writing of a 10-page script that reflects the festival’s theme, which is the conflicts confronting many American Indians today--modern ways vs. traditional ways, urban life vs. reservation life, etc. This will be followed by pre-production and training at the Duke City Shootout Digital Bootcamp, July 15 through 25. Filming begins the first full week of August and will continue for six to eight days, followed by editing. Interested persons should contact festival coordinator Ollie Reed Jr. at (505) 890-0756 or oreedjr@gmail.com. For more info, log on to vsartsnm.org.

Vertigo Viewing

The Civic Cinema Classic Film Series continues this Friday at Albuquerque’s Harry E. Kinney Civic Plaza. Starting at approximately 8:30 p.m., Alfred Hitchcock’s 1958 thriller Vertigo will be screened for free. The film stars James Stewart and Kim Novak and is always worth seeing on the big screen. For a complete list of upcoming films, log on to cabq.gov/cultural-services/civic-cinema.

Record Pace

Gov. Bill Richardson’s office is touting Run For Her Life, which begins principal photography June 15 in Santa Fe, as the 100th major film production to be shot in New Mexico under his administration. Not too shabby a statistic, considering it took New Mexico about 70 years (1898 to 1968) to hit the century mark the first time through. Run For Her Life is a dramatic thriller about a D.A. who becomes entrenched in a dangerous situation while trying to save the life of his daughter. It stars Dermot Mulroney and Diane Kruger and is being helmed by acclaimed Icelandic director Baltasar Kormákur (101 Reykjavík). Also shooting in the Land of Enchantment this summer: Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins, Observe and Report, Sex & Lies in Sin City, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and the TV series spin-off of Crash.

Cheap Kar Wai

Fans of Hong Kong director Wong Kar Wai (Chungking Express, In the Mood for Love) should note that his new film My Blueberry Nights starring Norah Jones, Jude Law, David Strathairn and Rachel Weisz is opening this week--for reasons as yet inexplicable--at Cinemark’s second-run movie theater Movies West.
