Spanning the last 13 years, the annual Santa Fe Film Festival has been stimulating the minds and views of all those interested in cinematic arts. The festival is open to US and Foreign films in three categories: Narrative Features, Documentary Features, and Shorts. This four-day film extravaganza will pay tribute to the industry and showcase the best in independent film and creative narrative arts, spotlighting New Mexico filmmakers, in hopes to raise awareness to promote Santa Fe as an upcoming, cutting edge independent art city. It is held at the Center for the Contemporary Arts, Thursday-Sunday, December 6-9, 2012. The Santa Fe Film Festival continues to build, stimulate and entertain audiences through its film exhibitions and forums within the community.
