New Mexico Women in Film Honors New Mexico Girls Make Movies with 2018 Sage Award

SANTA FE, NM - New Mexico Women in Film (NMWIF) will honor New Mexico Girls Make Movies (NMGMM) as this year’s Sage Award winner for their enormous contribution to the training and empowerment of young women seeking careers in the film industry. The award will be given at NMWIF’s Holiday Party on Saturday, November 15th from 2pm-5pm at BMW of Santa Fe, 2578 Camino Entrada. Everyone is welcome to attend the Holiday Party for free with an RSVP.

The annual Sage Award was created by NMWIF to honor a person who is dedicated to the ‘greater feminine’ and active in supporting women in the film and TV industry. NMWIF is very proud of their recipients who have received the Sage Award since its inception: Shirley MacLaine, Lisa Strout, Ann Lerner, Ali MacGraw, Ana Gallegos y Reinhart, Jo Edna Boldin, Monique Anair, Julia Cameron, and Trish Lopez.

“We are thrilled to present the Sage Award to NMGMM for their dedication to training the next generation of women in the film industry,” said Christine McHugh, President of NMWIF.

New Mexico Girls Make Movies is a free state-wide program that provides education and job training to New Mexico girls and young women ages 12-25. Through filmmaking programs, grants, workshops, internships, set placement, and networking, we empower young women in New Mexico to create their own opportunities in the film and television industries and make their creative dreams a reality.

NMGMM holds its first PA Training Workshop in ABQ, hosted by PAPA!

We are thrilled to report that the NMGMM Production Assistant Training workshop in ABQ in October was a success. Young women from six schools were trained to be “set ready” and gain entry level job experience in the film industry. These girls hit it out of the ballpark with their storyboards and creativity. The next day, the NMGMM Mentees got to put what they learned to the test on set of the New Mexico Women in Film Public Service Announcement set for Enlace Comunitario. They worked as PAs in various departments including Camera, Sound, and Assistant Director. A big thanks to Su Hudson of Public Academy for the Performing Arts (PAPA) and her wonderful students for hosting us and to Cat Jones, writer/director of the PSA, and New Mexico Women in Film for giving the young women a great on set opportunity! Please stay tuned here on our website for upcoming PA training workshops!
