The New Mexico Film Foundation invests in filmmakers, not films. We are a non-profit foundation, not a production company. We feel it is important to fund the arts in general and New Mexico independent filmmakers in particular. We will be offering a variety of grants to accomplish this. Currently we are engaged in a variety of  activities in order to fund these grant programs. If you are interested in providing a donation, you can click on the “Donate” page or contact us to learn more about our Grants program by going to our Contact Us page.
