Programs and projects will be a mainstay for the New Mexico Film Foundation. These will bring attention to various aspects of the independent film industry in New Mexico, provide educational opportunities to not only filmmakers but the public as well. Planned efforts include the filmmaker interview project which is a state-wide initiative, the “Actors Showcase” to shine a light on the talented actors in the state, the “Life in New Mexico” media project and the “DCP workshops” which teach filmmakers how to create files for display in the newest digital projection systems.

The New Mexico Film Foundation is also interested in establishing an accelerator which will help filmmakers with the business side of the film industry. This accelerator will provide information on pre-production, budgeting, marketing, packaging and distribution.
