Santa Fe, NM – The 10th Annual Santa Fe Film Festival is underway this week in Santa Fe.

Operations Director Karen RedHawk Dallett says the economic downturn created unexpected challenges for the festival. She says organizers had to be particularly creative with limited resources.

Dallett says the festival plays an important role in the New Mexico film industry. It features panels and workshops in addition to the packed film screening schedule. Dallett says this year they cut down on the number of films but not the quality.
