New Mexico is having a Film and Media Day on February 16, 2011 in Santa Fe, New Mexico on the corner of Paseo de Peralta & Old Santa Fe Trail from 10AM - 3PM, which will give New Mexico residents a chance to learn more about the community's burgeoning film industry. One of the highlights is that they're using the event as an open casting call for upcoming New Mexico productions... including Joss Whedon's The Avengers!
You can go to the Official Site to find out more details about some of the events being offered that day including acting classes, stunt and special FX demonstrations and casting directors will be present to meet with everyone and take headshots. And it's all free!
If you're living in New Mexico and are a fan of movies, then this special event might be a great way to learn more about how they make movies and maybe get involved in making them yourself!
