Pasatiempo - - PASATIEMPO -


The an­nual Santa Fe Film Fes­ti­val re­turns from Wednesday, Feb. 7, to Feb. 11, with a slate of in­ter­na­tional films and di­verse pan­els that shine a light on women in the film industry as well as cin­e­matic voices and sto­ries that fall a lit­tle out­side the Hol­ly­wood main­stream. There are fea­ture-length nar­ra­tive films and doc­u­men­taries, shorts by lo­cal film­mak­ers, nu­mer­ous pan­els for those who work in or aspire to work in the New Mex­ico film industry, par­ties for at­ten­dees to hob­nob with film­mak­ers from near and far, and a few celebrity ap­pear­ances.

The fes­ti­val be­gins at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 7, at The Screen (1600 St. Michael’s Drive), with a show­ing of Film­worker, di­rected by Tony Zierra, a doc­u­men­tary about Leon Vi­tali, an ac­tor who gave up his ca­reer in front of the cam­era to be­come Stan­ley Kubrick’s per­sonal as­sis­tant. At 3 p.m. on Thurs­day, Feb. 8, is a New Mex­ico Women in Film panel at the Jean Cocteau Cin­ema (418 Mon­tezuma Ave.), and the Dance Shorts Pro­gram — which has sold out in pre­vi­ous years — is at 5:15 p.m. at the Screen. Di­rec­tor and ac­tress Me­lanie May­ron (Thir­tysome­thing,

Girl­friends) screens her film Snap­shots at 3:15 p.m. on Feb. 10 at The Screen, fol­lowed by a Q&A. Co­me­dian, ac­tor, and film­maker Aisha Tyler presents her film Axis at 10 a.m. on Feb. 11 at the Cocteau.

The var­ied and deep as­sort­ment of industry-fo­cused events in­cludes an act­ing work­shop, a Women of a Cer­tain Age panel, an en­ter­tain­ment law panel, an indie film­maker panel, a cast­ing panel, a sound work­shop, and a Na­tive cin­ema panel. Screen­ings and events are held at the Jean Cocteau Cin­ema, the Cen­ter for Con­tem­po­rary Arts, The Screen, and the Cen­ter for Progress and Jus­tice, as well as the Drury Plaza Ho­tel, Cow­girl BBQ, 315 Restau­rant and Wine Bar, New Mex­ico State Capi­tol Round­house, and the Santa Fe Com­mu­nity Con­ven­tion Cen­ter.
