Sands of cinema

The White Sands International Film Festival returns to sunny Las Cruces on Wednesday, Sept. 4, with another four days’ worth of cinematic discoveries. This year’s highlights include: a lifetime achievement award for guest of honor Lou Diamond Phillips, the world premiere of the locally shot comedy Roswell FM and one of those increasingly popular “48-hour film” competitions. Noted character actor Christopher McDonald (Happy Gilmore) will be teaching an acting workshop. There will be a panel discussion on “Writing For Film” featuring C.M. Bratton, Kerry Valderama, David Spence, Amy Lanasa and Mark Medoff. To top it all off, dozens of features, shorts, and documentaries will be shown Wednesday through Sunday at the Cineport 10 theater.

Showcase seeks filmmakers

The New Mexico Filmmakers Showcase is an annual “open sheet” screening sponsored by the New Mexico Film Office. Any New Mexico-based filmmaker wishing to get his or her work screened in front of the public is encouraged to submit features, shorts, documentaries, animation, experimental films, whatever. From Oct. 25 to Oct. 27, the Film Office will provide three days’ worth of free screening opportunities at Albuquerque’s Guild Cinema. A panel of local film professionals will critique the films in various categories, and the winning films will be included in a touring showcase that will be sent all around the state. If you’ve got a visual work you’d like to submit, entry forms and further details can be found on the State Film Office website. Space is limited, and screening slots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no fee to enter. This year’s final deadline is Friday, Sept. 20, at 5pm. So get on the ball, filmmakers.
