New Mexico Women in Film presents, Funding Our Own Films- Finally!!!

6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
From your host, Actress & NMIF Media Committee Chair Lora Cunningham:
NMWIF presents an impressive panel of New Mexico Legislators and top industry producers who will address an issue that concerns us all- FUNDING OUR PROJECTS!
So many of us simply don’t know where or how to find financing. To this point, we’ve been frustrated with elusive and inaccessible funding- having to turn to friends, family and even our own pockets for help!
Our guest producers will give insight into how they’ve successfully managed to finance their films!
Our guest legislators will address the The New Mexico Filmmakers’ Bill, which creates accessible money for all of us to use, whether you’re making a feature, short, TV show or Web Series.
Join us as Jon Hendry invites us to his private VIP Legislators’ Lounge at the Rio Chama for a night of education and empowerment.
This piece of legislation was created specifically for us, New Mexico filmmakers, to fund our dreams.
Come be a part of its success, so it can be a part of yours.
Esteemed Panelists Include:
Senator Tim Keller
Representative Brian Egoff
Representative Al Park
Representative Sue Wilson Beffort
Alicia J. Keyes, Producer “Blaze You Out”
