Contracting Awards

This Friday, Sept. 5, marks the deadline for filmmakers to apply to the New Visions/New Mexico contract awards. For the third year in a row, our state has set aside $160,000 in contract awards. New Mexico filmmakers could be eligible for up to $20,000 for the initialization, production or completion of a film- or video-based project. In addition, Panavison has once again offered to provide two awards of camera rental packages valued at $10,000 each. Narrative films, documentaries, animated and experimental projects are all eligible. Applicants must be 18 years of age and New Mexico residents. Projects will be judged on a variety of criteria, including artistic quality of the project, the applicant’s demonstrated ability, managerial and fiscal ability, and service to the state. Naturally, there’s a lot of paperwork to fill out, so get cracking. You can find all the appropriate information at nmfilm.com.

Pre-Screening Party

The sixth annual Southwest Gay and Lesbian Film Festival is scheduled to start on Sept. 26. Not ones to wait for a soiree, organizers are kicking it off early with a fabulous benefit party at Scalo Northern Italian Grill this Saturday, Sept. 6, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Party attendees will be among the first in New Mexico to know which films are playing and who is hosting the many festival parties held throughout the weeklong, multicity event. There will be festival programs, food and a cash bar, too. All proceeds go to help fund the film festival. Tickets to the kickoff party are on sale at the door for $25. Members of Closet Cinema get a $5 discount. Scalo is located at 3500 Central SE. For all the intimate details, visit closetcinema.org.

King of the Hill

Jo Edna Boldin Casting is looking for a “strikingly handsome” 13-year-old boy to play the lead in a new Western starring Terrence Hill. Now, that’s not gonna mean a whole lot to your average 13-year-old. But this is a Western starring Terrence Hill. Born Mario Girotti, the Italian actor was featured in dozens upon dozens of oaters such as Rampage at Apache Wells, Old Surehand and Django, Prepare a Coffin. In 1967, he officially changed his name and appeared in a very popular series of comic Westerns including classics like They Call Me Trinity and My Name is Nobody--often alongside pal/costar Bud Spencer. No word on what this new shot-in-New-Mexico film is going to be, but it’s got freaking Terrence Hill in it! If you’ve got a kid, e-mail current snapshots along with complete contact information to casting@newmex.com.
