The first action movie resulted from a slideshow-projector malfunction, which turned a deck of family vacation photos into a fiery, explosion-packed beachside adventure. Take a trip to the movies with this Groupon.

With dozens of screenings and parties throughout the weekend, the festival celebrates the chutzpah of independent filmmakers from around the world. Friday’s events include eight movie showings along with panels on directing and funding films, followed by a party held in collaboration with a local art collective. On Saturday, movies are interspersed with an acting workshop with Sheryl Roberts, a screenwriting panel with Ron Bloomberg and Judy and Larry Blume, and the awards ceremony and after-after party. Finally, Sunday’s events wrap up the festival with nine more films, a discussion on the importance of independent filmmaking with Chris Eyre, and the closing-night party.<p>

Santa Fe Independent Film Festival

For the fourth year in a row, the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival has gathered filmmakers and performers to celebrate the independent film movement. The organizers continue to hold the event in an effort to boost economic development while also providing opportunities for educational, cultural, and artistic growth for the community. In doing so, they host panels with authors and decorated directors and question-and-answer sessions after screenings. Sponsors such as Cowgirl BBQ, KUNM 89.9 FM, and Garrett's Desert Inn serve swag and grub respectively, and every night of the festival sees its visitors feting films at bars around Santa Fe. The screenings, many of which are New Mexico premieres, take place at the historic Lensic Performing Arts Center, Warehouse 21, and the Center for Contemporary Arts.
