July 2018

Dear Members, Friends & Supporters,

In June, NMWIF had a wonderfully productive Monologue Mania with Elizabeth Gabel and Chris Ranney of Sol. The feedback was fantastic from both participants and coaches. Precious few opportunities to get direct feedback from a Casting Director on the spot and it seemed to be of such a benefit we’re looking forward to next year’s version of Monologue Mania. Special thanks to Alaina Warren Zachary and her team of volunteers for making this such a high value event for members.

With summer now if full swing it’s always a bit of a challenge to get people out to NMWIF events what with so much social competition out there. To guarantee a great turn out for our July event we are hosting one of the most in-demand info sessions in all of New Mexico. Leslie Fleming-Mitchell from the NM Film Office will be lecturing on How To Make The NM Film Incentive Work For You. If you missed their June talk on the same topic by Leslie in Santa Fe then come down to Albuquerque on Thursday evening, July 26th from 6:00 to 7:30 (location TBA). Did you know that there is no minimum spend on a film to qualify for the tax rebate? That’s why it’s important to learn all the way’s that you small, indie filmmakers can qualify. Also, some very useful tips on the ins and outs of this fantastic program.  As always we’ll hold a little post-talk mixer to get to network and find out what everyone is working on. Please join us at the end of July for this free, fun and informative event.


Keep Making Media,

Christine McHugh,
NMWIF President
