Dreaming about working in the film industry, but aren’t sure where to start? On Thursday, Aug. 8 interested students and working professionals can network with film and media instructors from around the state at the New Mexico Film Office’s open house event at the Hyatt Regency (330 Tijeras Ave. NW). From 2 to 5pm, representatives from Santa Fe Community College, Doña Ana Community College, Central New Mexico Community College, Eastern New Mexico University, University of New Mexico and Taos Digital Media Arts will be on hand to talk about their cinema and media arts programs. Folks from local film trade unions IATSE Local 480, SAG-AFTRA and Teamsters Local 493 will also be there to discuss opportunities in the local film industry. This event is free and open to the public and serves as a “teaser” for this weekend’s annual Film & Media Industry Conference, starting this Friday.
