The Madrid Film Festival (that’s Madrid, N.M.—not Madrid, Spain) goes on tour starting this Thursday, Jan. 16. That night, at 7pm, the Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe (418 Montezuma Ave.) kicks it off by playing host to a one-night-only showcase of offerings from last year’s second annual festival. Organizers say they saw an astonishing number of high-quality films from all over New Mexico in 2019 and are now highlighting the best of the best award-winners in this new statewide tour. Comedies, dramas, thrillers and documentaries are among the genres represented. Impresario Joe West and author Andrew Wice, who founded the Madrid Film Festival in 2018, will host the screening. West is bringing along his band as well and will offer up some live musical accompaniment. Tickets are $10. For more info go to jeancocteaucinema.com.
