MISSION & OBJECTIVE
Santa Fe Film Festival is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting film and the artists who create them by providing a creative forum for exchange and discovery with the public. From discoveries by emerging voices to revisiting masterpieces which have been newly restored, Santa Fe Film Festival is a celebration of the creative artists who contribute to our cinematic heritage.
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Established in 1999, the 13th edition of Santa Fe Film Festival will run December 6-9, 2012. Santa Fe Film Festival will collaborate with arts organizations throughout the city to present a curated selection of 40 film related programs over 4 days. Filmmakers, journalists, industry leaders and audiences from around the world gather together in this relaxed, intimate setting to celebrate the cinematic arts through a selection of the best in current world cinema, a spotlight on New Mexico filmmakers and revisiting the classics.
The festival program includes narrative and documentary features, shorts, special screenings of archival restorations and retrospectives. Embracing the full spectrum of cinematic arts, Santa Fe Film Festival extends beyond screenings to its "artists in conversation" series, panels, workshops, related art exhibitions and opportunities for meeting and sharing ideas.
The festival is infused with the creative spirit and multi-ethnic culture of the region that is reflected in Santa Fe's unique historic architecture, robust fine and folk arts scene, latin-infused cuisine and the friendliness of its residents.
