Oct. 04--It's another year of some of the best of independent films. The Santa Fe Independent Festival kicks off on Oct. 16 and runs through Oct. 20 in Santa Fe. Locations include the Lensic Performing Arts Center, Center for Contemporary Arts, Jean Cocteau, The Screen and Warehouse 21 at the Santa Fe Railyard.
Jacques Paisner, co-founder of the festival, says it is full of films that will reach a bunch audiences.
Paisner says the festival is coming off a great year in 2012, where it premiered Rudolfo Anaya's "Bless Me, Ultima."
"This year we have the documentary 'Tapia,' which I think continues the tradition of us having a New Mexico-heavy film," he says.
The festival also will host the premiere of "Sweet Vengeance," which stars Ed Harris and January Jones. The movie recently was filmed in northern New Mexico.
In addition to films, the festival will host panels by film industry professionals such as Wes Studi and Lee Daniel. There also will be a fashion show by Taos resident -- and "Project Runway" runner-up -- Patricia Michaels.
"There's something for everyone," Paisner says.
