The New Mexico Film Foundation is pleased to announce a new grant program and a new script contest for New Mexico students.
The New Mexico Girls Make Movies Grant offers New Mexico girls and young women
(ages twelve to twenty-five) the opportunity to submit their original screenplays, shorts
stories, comic books, poems, etc. for the chance to win a $1000 production budget and
the support of a professional film crew to turn their story into a short film. All finalists will
be invited to join the crew on the winning short film.
From screenwriting to editing, costume design to camera, girls learn every aspect of the
filmmaking process to make their short film great. Professional mentors guide them
every step of the way and the girls gain on-set experience and have fun!
The program was created by Directors Jocelyn Jansons, a Santa Fe-based filmmaker
and winner of the George RR Martin Grant through the New Mexico Film Foundation for
her upcoming feature film WOLF, and Carrie McCarthy, the Marketing and Creative
Director for Santa Fe Photographic Workshops and founder of Santa Fe Women in
