Thousands of New Mexicans attended Film & Media Day at the state capitol on Feb 16th. In addition to multiple symposiums on all aspects of the film & multimedia business, there were casting calls for several major film & TV projects.

The film business, one of the fastest growing industries in the state, is by nature a sustainable industry that does not require permanent infrastructures to create jobs. The NM film community has adopted “shooting it green” as its mantra. Several aspects of that commitment were on display, including the latest venture from activist Holly Roach – locally sourced biodiesel.
