Welcome to a new era of film and media production in New Mexico – with more emphasis on building long-term production partners that ensure a year-round workforce with regular paychecks.
Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham has identified film and media production for aggressive and strategic investments from her administration. It is a clean, sustainable industry with an established statewide workforce.
The newest initiatives seek to nurture that ecosystem into one that supports year-round employment and careers for students now working on film and media technical certifications in 22 degree programs around the state. It’s an industry-cluster economic development philosophy.
With the commitment of Netflix and potentially other studio partners, Albuquerque is front and center in that effort.
