High Desert Screening is up next. Following up on last year’s debut outing, the 2019 High Desert Screening features local film and video artists sharing a selection of trailers, short films and music videos that promises to “entertain, educate and inspire New Mexico’s unique theatrical and visual arts scene.” The event takes place from 4 to 7pm on Saturday, Oct. 19 at the South Broadway Cultural Center (1025 Broadway Blvd. SE). Comedian Mary Byrd serves as MC for the evening, and a pair of local musicians are lined up to keep audiences entertained during intermission. Tickets are $10 general admission or $5 for children. There will be an after-party with organizers and filmmakers at Red Door Brewing (509 Central Ave. NW) that evening. To learn more go to facebook.com/highdesertscreening.
