Proud PAPA

A group of students from Albuquerque’s Public Academy for Performing Arts just got back from Los Angeles where their short dance film “Re-Step” was screened at the 12th Annual Dance Camera West. All told, PAPA won awards in six categories at the April festival for both film and photography. So congratulations are in order all around. If you’re interested in checking out what PAPA has been doing, several works by advanced PAPA film students will be screened alongside professional filmmakers at the N4th theater’s Wild Dancing West celebration this Friday night.

Student Cinema

Instead of scribbling notes and taking tests, the students at Albuquerque’s Public Academy for Performing Arts’ media program decided to make their own feature film. The end result, a 60-minute movie called PAPArazzi, will make its public debut on Thursday, Feb. 23, at Guild Cinema. The film tells the story of two ambitious performing arts school students doing battle with one another to get their hands on a coveted scholarship. The film will screen at 5:15, 6:15 and 7:15 p.m. Of course, the cast and crew will be in attendance. To help out, Guild next-door neighbor Il Vicino pizzeria has offered to donate 20 percent of its sales that night to the school’s media program (if you mention PAPArazzi). So come out, have dinner, watch a movie and support Albuquerque’s next generation of filmmakers.
