Richardson Continues Support For Film Programs
By KRWG News
New Mexico – Gov. Bill Richardson has provided $130,000 for film and digital media programs at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe.
Richardson said Thursday the money will help buy cameras and editing equipment for training students for jobs in the film and television industry.
Since taking office in 2003, Richardson has advocated financial incentives to attract film productions to the state and secured money from the Legislature to expand film training programs.
The governor has allocated $1.2 million to film and digital media programs in the state since June.
