NM Film Foundation End of Year Fundraising Campaign

“The New Mexico Film Foundation wonderfully supports and inspires our film community! Specifically, the Actors Showcase provides an invaluable place for us to gain experience, knowledge and exposure. I have witnessed so many dreams come true through the industry connections made as a result of the passion and hard work put into the showcase. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!” – Sincerely, Lora Martinez-Cunningham, Actor and instructor

“Thanks to the NMFF for bringing in top notch acting teachers like Laura Gardner. Because of her workshops I am at the top of my game and I book many acting jobs in film and television here in New Mexico.” – Melissa Chambers, Actor

“The art of making movies, especially in the indie world is an impossible feat, but with the NMFF offering such incredible opportunities such as scholarships, education, fiscal sponsorships and platforms for artists to live their art such as the annual “Actors’ Showcase,” “– Tiffany Neeley Sol Acting Academy, Actor

End of Year Contribution Campaign

New Mexico Actors
Dear Supporter
Thanks to you and other supporters like you, over 250 New Mexico Actors have participated in our Actor Showcase. And there have been nearly 70 that have taken advantage of the acting workshops provided through the New Mexico Film Foundation.

Melissa Chambers was one of the actors selected to appear live on stage in our first Actor Showcase in 2014. She has gone on to appear in a number of films and television shows. Two of our younger actors under the age of 17 have been featured in national magazines and appeared in commercials and nationally screened films.

Every day, your support makes stories like their’s possible. And our 2019 New Mexico Actors Showcase submission process has begun on December 1st. 

Today, we’re launching our 2018 Year-End Campaign.  Our goal is to help an additional 300 people next year, but there are so many more that we need to encourage, train and assist in the Above the Line filmmaking community.

That’s why our goal for this campaign is to raise $75,000 by December 31st.  If we raise that amount, we’ll be able to develop workshops, programs and grants available throughout New Mexico.

Would you be willing to make a special year-end donation of $50, $100 or whatever you can afford to help us meet our goal and provide support to our New Mexico filmmakers?

We simply can’t do it without you.  Your support will make a real, lasting impact in the lives of those who simply want to tell their stories and grow the New Mexico economy.
