New Film and Media Curriculum Developed for High School

New Mexico high school students will soon have the opportunity to enroll in film and media courses and receive two-semester certificates of completion in hopes of working in the state’s film industry, the Public Education Department (PED) announced today at a news conference at Film and Media Day at the Legislature.

Over the past six months, the PED and the NM Higher Education Department collaborated with the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) Local 480 to provide new coursework and training for the state’s high school students in the area of film and media.
