There has never been a more exciting time for the film industry in New Mexico, and things are equally exciting in the world of youth filmmakers. Since 2021, Film Prize Jr NM (https://www.filmprizenm.com/) has been supporting NM youth to create short films and explore their creativity. Youth from Los Alamos have won prizes in both the 2022 and 2023 state wide film contests.
