Like New Mexico, Ukraine is home of freedom, community, and art.
Join the Albuquerque Film & Music Experience (AFMX) and Filmmakers for Ukraine in this first-ever event bringing the Ukrainian and New Mexican film communities together to raise awareness and funds for Ukrainian filmmakers and others in Ukraine facing dire situations.
Filmmakers for Ukraine, a global group of filmmakers volunteering their time, prioritizes helping filmmakers, their families and disadvantaged groups in Ukraine who otherwise may not receive the urgent help they need. Proceeds from your ticket purchase will provide critical aid to get them through the cold winter months and beyond.
For just $20, you’ll get to see a hand-curated block of short films, and Sundance 2022 winner and Academy Award Nominated documentary, A House Made of Splinters, which Variety calls “an affecting diary of life continuing in the worst of circumstances.”
