An award winning local short film will premiere in Albuquerque on Thursday.
“The Princess and the Musician” short film was shot at the Double Tree Hotel downtown and the University of New Mexico.
The film recently won a people’s choice award at the Taos Shortz Film Fest.
It has also been accepted to festivals in New York and Santa Fe.
Director Alejandro Montoya Marin says that he is proud that his film showcased so much local talent.
“What I’m always proud of when people see this short film is to let them know that there’s a lot of talent in New Mexico that just hasn’t been discovered yet,” Marin said.
The film will premiere at the National Hispanic Cultural Center on April 17 at 7 p.m.
KOB’s Tom Joles and Eddie Garcia will be special guests at the event.
Admission is free.
