Filmmakers from all over NM raised the bar significantly, with two distinct, fully-packed programs of short films including comedies, dramas, thrillers and documentaries of original entertainment.

Your hosts, impresario Joe West and author Andrew Wice, will welcome audiences to the Second Annual Madrid Film Festival at the Engine House Theater on July 26 and July 27 at 7:30 pm. An 11:30 am screening on Sunday was added because last year’s debut was such a runaway sold-out success, and these impressive short films deserve an audience.

The quantity and quality of films submitted this year was astonishing, coming from all over New Mexico. These filmmakers have raised the bar significantly, which results in two distinct fully-packed programs of short films. Comedies, dramas, thrillers and documentaries make for an evening of highly original entertainment.

Program 1 is Friday, July 26, 7:30 pm, $15. Program 2 is Saturday, July 27, 7:30 pm, $15. Tickets for both nights, plus access to the VIP reception, $25.

On Sunday is a discount screening, which shows all the films from 11 am to 3 pm, $15.    

Tickets may be purchased via the website or in person at the Mine Shaft Tavern (upper Cantina Bar).
