Animated muchacho

The Digital Arts Department at the Santa Fe University of Art and Design will host a visit from award-winning Mexican animator Pablo Calvillo from Sept. 19 to 21. Calvillo has worked for a number of design, animation and film studios in Mexico, the Czech Republic, Australia and the US. He has done everything from 3D animation to layout to art direction on feature films such as Ice Age: Continental Drift, Epic, Happy Feet Two and Astro Boy as well as the upcoming projects Mad Max: Fury Road and The Lego Movie. In addition to mentoring students during a day-long workshop, Calvillo will present his personal and commercial work during a free public lecture. The lecture/screening will take place on Thursday, Sept. 19, starting at 7:30pm at SFUAD’s Tipton Hall. For more info, visit santafeuniversity.edu.

The Graduates screening at KiMo

Educational films

The next New Mexico Community Cinema screening will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 25, at the KiMo Theatre in Downtown Albuquerque. Your New Mexico PBS stations have joined forces with the Latino Education Task Force to present a free public screening of the “Independent Lens” documentary The Graduates/Los Graduados. This two-part special examines the roots of the Latino dropout crisis in America by looking though the eyes of six “inspiring young students” who are part of an ongoing effort to increase graduation rates for a growing Latino population. This Wednesday KiMo will screen “The Boys Hour”—which concentrates, of course, on the problems facing male students. On Wednesday, Oct. 30, the KiMo will follow up with “The Girls Hour.” The complete documentary will air on PBS’ “Independent Lens” series in November. Following the KiMo sneak-peek, there will be an interactive, moderated discussion panel about education. Doors open at 6:30pm. Screening/discussion starts at 7pm. For more info, go to newmexicopbs.org.

Filthy Waters

In its few short years of existence, the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival has grown by leaps and bounds. The event is scheduled to take place Oct. 16 through 20, with workshops, screenings, lectures and parties fast accumulating. This year, however, organizers are welcoming a true luminary in the independent film field—trash film auteur John Waters! The Baltimore-based director of Pink Flamingos, Female Trouble, Polyester and Hairspray will be in Santa Fe to perform his one-man show John Waters Live: This Filthy World. The event will take place Saturday, Oct. 19, at The Lensic (211 W. San Francisco) at 7pm. Tickets go for between $18 and $58 (or $500 for front row seats and dinner with John Waters) and are on sale now at ticketssantafe.org. There’s every reason to believe this one will sell out quickly, so you might want to get your tickets now.
