|George R. R. Martin - $5000 Screenwriter Grant
The New Mexico Film Foundation is very proud and happy to be able to offer this grant through the generosity of screenwriter and executive producer of Game of Thrones: George R.R. Martin. This grant is meant to help aspiring screenwriters and should be used in such a way as to allow the screenwriter to write.
|Lockheed Martin- $5000 filmmaker grant
Lockheed Martin is the prime contractor building Orion, NASA’s next generation spacecraft for human exploration of deep space. Orion’s first test flight, Exploration Flight Test-1 (EFT-1), will occur this year, sending Orion 3,600 miles beyond low Earth orbit, and returning at a speed of approximately 20,000 mph for a splashdown in the Pacific Ocean. EFT-1 will provide engineers with data about systems critical to crew safety in order to validate spacecraft designs before it begins carrying humans to new destinations in deep space. Lockheed Martin will share the winning film as part of its EFT-1 public outreach.
|Southwest Arts Group
The New Mexico Film Foundation and the Southwest Arts Group announces a partnership that brings together the talents of both the film and music industries. The two groups will be working together on a project coming in the spring of 2015. "Both organizations comprise extremely talented individuals who work hard and look for opportunities to serve the community of artists; it only makes sense to forge a relationship with each other that will allow an extremely rich community of actors, singers and other artists to interact and present together," comments Artistic Director Renato N. Estacio.
