El Salon Mexico Premieres tonight!


Perhaps one of the more highly anticipated movies to come out of the NM Filmmakers "New Visions | New Mexico" contract award program, El Salon Mexico premieres later today at the NM Film Museum (Jean Cocteau Theatre under the NM Film Office).

Here's the info from the Weekly Alibi's Reel World column from Devin O'Leary:
On Friday, Sept. 11, the New Mexico Film Museum at Jean Cocteau Theatre in Santa Fe will host the premiere of Tamarind King and Paul Glickman’s just-completed New Visions 2007 Contract Award winning short “El Salon Mexico.” Inspired by the exuberant composition by Aaron Copeland, the animated film was made using Photoshop and Illustrator and consists of more than 22,500 individual frames. Previous animated films by King and Glickman will also be screened. There will be two free showings at 6 and 8 p.m. Seating is limited, so be sure to RSVP to pglickman@earthlink.net using “ESM Screening” in the subject line. The Jean Cocteau Theatre is located at 418 Montezuma in Santa Fe
Which seems like a good reason to remind everyone that the deadline for the latest New Visions | New Mexico Contract Award Program is coming up on October 16th. Visit the NM Film Office site for details.
