On Thursday, September 13, REEL NEW MEXICO presents a fascinating and entertaining overview of the history of filmmaking in New Mexico from 1898 to 1990 from the perspective of film reviewer, historian and fanatical movie enthusiast Jeff Berg. Titled “New Mexico in the Movies – the First 92 Years,” Berg’s program, designed especially for Reel New Mexico, uses numerous film clips and Berg’s own delightful behind-the-scenes narration to show the solid foundation on which the film industry in New Mexico rests today. The program starts at 7 p.m. at The Performance Space.

 New Mexico’s filmmaking history is rich and varied. Since Thomas Edison arranged to shoot the first known piece of motion picture film at the Isleta Pueblo Day School in 1898 to the present day, more than 500 feature films and television shows have been shot within the borders of our state. To add a unique historical view to the state’s centennial year, Berg has assembled an all-new set of clips from made-in-New Mexico movies especially for Reel New Mexico.

Formerly of Las Cruces and recently relocated to Santa Fe, Berg got the idea for a series of programs on New Mexico films from a weekly film series he hosted in Las Cruces, which included numerous made-in-New Mexico movies. The films Berg will cover at his Reel New Mexico program encompass all genres, from comedy to drama to Western to horror. He will offer background on each movie, including shooting locations, insider trivia and New Mexico history, in a blend of humor and information that encourages audience participation. In this exciting premiere presentation, the audience will visit every corner of the state, from Farmington to Carlsbad and from Clayton to Lordsburg and learn about the three distinct periods in New Mexico’s film history. Berg promises there will not be a pop quiz afterwards.

Reel New Mexico, a monthly program of films with a New Mexico connection, was formed early in 2012 to fill a need for an ongoing, noncompetitive venue for New Mexico filmmakers. Unlike festivals, Reel New Mexico has no entry fee and gives no awards. Proceeds from the $5 suggested at the door go for expenses and to the filmmakers for ongoing projects. Don’t miss “New Mexico in the Movies,” Thursday, Sept. 12, at 7 p.m. at The Performance Space

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. But imagine if you added some great images or
video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but
with pics and video clips, this blog could definitely be
one of the greatest in its field. Terrific blog!

Montgomery Clift was originally cast in the role,
