Cinema Ecuador

Instituto Cervantes continues its Latin American film series this week at the National Hispanic Cultural Center. On Thursday, Feb. 2, the Bank of America Theatre at the NHCC (1701 Fourth Street SW) will screen the 2005 Ecuadorian film Anytime Soon (Esas No Son Penas). It’s the story of five women from Quito, buddies as teens, who reunite to visit an ailing friend after 15 years. Think The Big Chill, but with fewer hippies and more of an accent. The film screening is free and will be presented with English subtitles. Show gets underway at 7 p.m. Get there early to guarantee a seat.

Mommy and Me

VH1 is—God, help us—casting for a new reality series. The show isn’t shooting exclusively in New Mexico, but something tells me casting directors have made a wise choice sending notices out to the media here in the Land of Enchantment. The network is looking to make a new docu-reality series about “pregnant mothers who have pregnant daughters at the same time.” So “if you and your daughter are outgoing and interested in sharing your stories,” go ahead and contact the casting team at Please include a brief description of why you should be part of this series and what has happened in your lives since you both found out you were pregnant. Include your phone number, email address and the city where you live. Let this be a lesson to all you high school girls out there: Feel free to get knocked up—it’ll significantly increase your chances of landing a show on VH1 or MTV.

Con Scripted

The SouthWest Writers will be hosting a one-day Screen & Script conference on Saturday, Feb. 25, at the MCM Eleganté Hotel in Albuquerque. Keynote speakers include Doug Eboch (Sweet Home Alabama), Miles Swarthout (The Shootist) and Rick Reichman (author of 20 Things You Must Know to Write a Great Screenplay). You have until Sunday, Feb. 12, to get in on the conference’s early bird registration of $155 for both SWW members and nonmembers alike. (Students get a $5 break on the price.) After that, the price jumps up to $175. To explore the full-day schedule of workshops, lectures and breakout sessions, or to register for Screen & Script 2012, go to
