If you’re in town, come on by the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival Oct. 16-20. There are a lot of great films, workshops and panels to attend, and I’ll be there too.
On Saturday, Oct. 19, at 1 p.m. I’ll be participating in a live comedy screen play reading of Chris Eyre’s newest film “Up the River.” As the festival tells it, “Up the River” is a 18th Century comedic adventure set on the Native plains where girl-crazy brothers, Crystal Blue Persuasion and Crazy Fox, are forced by the Elders to complete a war mission but instead journey up the river to meet the legendary Cheyenne Seven sisters.
It’s limited to 121 people so get your tickets fast. You can buy tickets here: http://www.ticketssantafe.org/tsf/event_calendar/detail/2264
Then on Sunday, Oct. 20, at 10:45 a.m., my wife Maura and I will be running an acting workshop on cold reading. Learn some tips, tricks and skills to master a cold read on stage and in life with us. You can get tickets here: http://www.ticketssantafe.org/tsf/event_calendar/detail/2272
Of course, whatever you’re doing at the festival, there are a lot of really great things to do and see. I plan to spend a lot of time seeing films and listening in on panels. Maybe I’ll see you there!
