Movies & Films

The ABQ Film Office’s twitter account is a great reference when looking for the social impacts the film industry has had upon our state. It allows film lovers, aspiring actors, and those looking to work behind the scenes a chance to engage on a personal level via social media. Casting calls, coming festivals, trailers, classes being offered, and opportunities for employment can all be seen from anyone’s cell phone or computer screen. This allows citizens to really connect with the booming industry around them. While twitter might not be the most credible New Mexico is becoming the “second Hollywood”of sources.  This is actually a valuable source. The ABQ Film Office doesn’t have a hidden agenda or reason for self-promoting. They are simply trying to connect people while making them aware of the latest going’s-on in the industry.
