Saturday June 7, 2014 the NMFF board, staff and their event sponsors hosted the gathering of a few hundred filmmakers, friends and fans of film.
The pinnacle of the evening came as NMFF President and Executive Director, Dirk Norris, announced the availability of an annual, $5000 screenwriters grant, made possible by the generous donation of the night’s guest of honor, George R. R. Martin (GRRM).
The prolific author who penned the novels which spawned the hit HBO series, “Game of Thrones” is a Santa Fe resident, known to many locals as the owner of Santa Fe’s own Jean Cocteau Cinema. On Saturday night GRRM expressed his eagerness to see what Sci-fi projects, hopeful local filmmakers will have to offer in the coming years.
“The New Mexico Film Foundation is excited and honored to be working with George in this way,” said Norris, “and appreciate his generosity in helping the independent film community in New Mexico.”

This Blogette says, don’t cry Burqueños! I see the writing on the Facebook wall just like you and it stings a little, but wait! Filming location and setting are oft two very different animals. Am I right, or am I right, or am I right?
Believe it or not New Mexico has played stand-in for such exotic locales as Egypt, Cali, Wyoming, Mexico, other worlds, other galaxies and yes even the East Coast…perhaps you’re familiar with the story of a mad chemistry teacher who made his way all the way to New Hampshire to escape his drug dealing comeuppance. And that my friends was all filmed right here in New Mexico.
So take heart #NM, come November New Mexico WILL hit the small screen again in Better Call Saul – under the talented hand of Sir Odenkirk, led by Masters Gilligan and Gould, for most if not all of its filming. Now the only other devastating turn of events, besides leaving NM to shoot would be if “Lynette” doesn’t land a role:
p.s. OHI has confirmed with sources within the production that NM is the only location on the shooting schedule for now…
The Night Shift premiered on NBC Tues. night!!!
