The 2019 Santa Fe Film Festival kicks off on Wednesday, Feb. 13 in conjunction with the annual New Mexico Film Week at the state Legislature. Between Feb. 13 and 17, the SFFF is set to screen more than 50 features, documentaries and short films. This year’s special guest is longtime film and television actor Ed Asner, who will be there to receive the festival’s Lifetime Achievement Award. The festival’s opening night film—screening Wednesday, 7pm, at The Screen (1800 St. Michael’s Drive)—is the Audience Award-winning drama from last year’s Sundance Film Festival, Burden. Garrett Hedlund, Forest Whitaker, Tess Harper and Tom Wilkinson star in this “inspiring true story” of a rising leader in the Ku Klux Klan who breaks away when the girl he falls in love with urges him to leave for a better life. Director Andrew Heckler will be on hand to introduce the film. Individual tickets are $10.50. For a complete list of films and events going on throughout the festival, head to santafefilmfestival.com.
