The Santa Fe Independent Film Festival this year is moving to the Downs de Santa Fe – and the comfort of your own home.
Due to restrictions brought about by the coronavirus pandemic, movie theaters in New Mexico aren’t open. So festival organizers plan to utilize the Motorama set up at the Downs. “Attendees” may also sign up to view the films from home through its Virtual Film Festival.
The annual film festival – to be held Oct. 14-18 – will publicly announce its lineup on Wednesday and tickets can be purchased then, though SFIFF members will get a preview of the schedule and be able to buy tickets Tuesday.
Prices are $125 for a virtual cinema pass, $220 for the drive-in package, and $295 for both.
