From the bottom of our collective hearts, we thank all the filmmakers for submitting films to the inaugural Fronteras Micro-film Festival! We are blown away by the interest and support from all around the world -- we received entries from México, Canada, France, Australia, the U.K., Iran, and the U.S. We are honored and thrilled to host a truly international festival!
The festival, from concept to execution, is the collective effort of the members of Dust Wave -- without their passion, diligence, and dedication, none of this would be possible. Specifically, I want to acknowledge the efforts of:
- Jade Stokes (co-organizer)
- Jay Renteria (co-organizer, graphic design)
- Jordyn Bernicke (social media, marketing, promotion)
- Jacklyn Le (social media, marketing)
All of their work has been vital to the festival's success thus far. Miles to go before we sleep, but way to go team!
I also want to highlight our installation artists -- I can't wait to unleash what we're building on the world! Artists helping us include:
Finally, a shout-out to our sponsors and partners -- these folks have generously contributed funding and/or supplies and/or effort to make this festival happen. They include:
The Fulcrum Fund (516 Arts + The Andy Warhol Foundation)
City of Albuquerque UETF
City of Albuquerque Dept. of Arts & Culture
Currents New Media
Albuquerque Film & Media Incubator
Albuquerque Computer & Electronics Recycling Co.
FYI -- we're moving the notification date to Friday, May 12th. There are lots of films to watch and lots of decisions to make, so we need a bit more time to make our final selections. Thanks for patience as we learn film festival management on the fly!
Again -- thanks a million. We will have our selections ready soon!
