Film Fest Founder’s Fight for ‘Likes’

Posted by on August 17, 2013 | 3 comments

The Original Albuquerque Film Festival

Recently, the original Albuquerque Film Fest Facebook page was hijacked.

Friday morning, followers of the longstanding “Albuquerque Film Festival” Facebook page were notified that the page, “is changing its name to “Indie Film is Better” on August 29″.

Albuquerque Film Festival founder, Rich Henrich and his partners were the originators of the page back in 2009, since that time it has amassed over 4,000 ‘Likes’ or fans. Friday’s notification to each of those fans, follows at least a few weeks worth of work someone has put in to eliminating all previous content put into the page and adding mostly all new, largely unrelated information, and a glaring founding date revision.

Henrich is in contact with Facebook to try and take back ownership of his event page, or have the stolen page shut down and has legal representation working toward a resolution to the problem. He has also taken to the scene of the “crime”, posting warnings on Facebook stating that the page has been taken over and revamped without his prior knowledge or permission saying, “this is not coming from me or anyone involved with the real ABQFF. This site has been illegally taken from our organization by some unscrupulous individuals in an effort to steal our Facebook fans for their own gain.”

The current ABQFF team has started a new page for the Albuquerque Film Festival here. A 2013 Albuquerque Film Festival is in the works for the fall, with a large scale, revamped fest coming back with a vengeance in the spring of 2014.

Unfortunately their experience in losing control of their all too important and valuable event page is a cautionary tale for social media users in that we should beware of organizations and groups who start-up or suddenly experience major changes on their social media sites – and most of all, a painful reminder to diligently guard your account access and passwords.

If you have New Mexico Entertainment Industry related issues to report or inquire about, you can post your comments here (below) or anonymously email local industry watchdog group, Watch E Dog at wegotyourbacknm@gmail.com.

Bigfoot, NM Style

Posted by on August 9, 2011 | One comment

As I am but a lowly housewife with internet access (think Roseanne with slightly better furniture, worse housekeeping and no actual wage earning) I defer to an actual journalist, as I almost always do, except, if and when I refer to fellow hacks ;).

Here, from real-life professional entertainment journalist, Chris J. Ortiz is a full fledged article about the long awaited New Mexico film The Bigfoot Election.

Synopsis:

After being fired, a boozy, derelict small town deputy named Talmadge Mooseman (Marc Shuter) is convinced to run for sheriff by his gruff adoptive father Carlin (Randall Oliver). He enlists the help of his endearing, albeit dim-witted friend Amer (Matt Peterson), and the two devise a Bigfoot hoax to garner attention and votes from the townspeople. Things quickly spiral out of control as the con begins to take on a life of its own and becomes bigger than either of them imagined. Matters get complicated even further when the local mayor (Bruce Holbrook) brings in an alluring cryptozoologist (Ashlee Renz-Hotz) and enlists Talmadge to guide her during her search.

Catch it:

Premiering this August 20 at the Albuquerque Film Festival followed by a screening at The White Sands International Film Festival August 25th.

From the 48 Hour Film Project taking over the Q, to the Duke City Shootout, the Albuquerque Film Festival, through the fall when capital city will put on The Santa Fe Film Festival, New Mexico is lousy with film opps. and events!!!

The 48 Hour Film Project runs in ABQ July 9-11

The Duke City Shootout blazes July 23-31

The Albuquerque Film Festival – August 25-29

Santa Fe Film Festival runs Oct. 20-24

Each fest is oozing with NM filmies + and if you’ve never been on a set or to a fest ea. is a must. The films themselves will no doubt be extraordinary, the people and culture are phenomenon unto themselves.

Come out and support what is rapidly becoming a major force in the state we all love. These are showcases, fundraisers and educational experiences sure to boost our sagging economy and raise our sometimes glib spirits. Dip your toe in the experience or dive all the way in…

It’s a trip – for Jenna

Keep checkin’ with us for announcements on these festivals, indie. film casting and crew calls and so much more. Par exemple the L.A./ABQ feature length film shoot of Dear Pen Pals has been seeking locals for extras and starring roles. Click here for full deets.
