Due September 9th, 2019 - New Mexico Route 66 Film Fest invites filmmakers of all ages to capture one of the most photogenic and intriguing subjects in the world—The Mother Road!

From “The Grapes of Wrath” and “Cars,” to “Easy Rider” and “Bagdad Café,” artists keep proving there’s always another curve in the story of America’s greatest highway. Route 66 entices travelers of all nations with her rocky peaks and expansive valleys, as she strings together a collection of small towns standing in stark contrast to her iconic cities. Some discover their inner grit when challenged by her dusty, desert-wrecked black top. Others marvel at her neon and motor courts as they travel to another era. What is certain, no one who travels America’s Main Street is left unchanged.

Join the ranks of John Ford, Peter Fonda, John Lassiter and Ridley Scott -- a group as eclectic as the attractions along the Route -- in translating the history, pathos and sheer lunacy of the road that settled the West.

New Mexico Route 66 Film Fest premieres as a spotlight event this September 2019 when Moriarty, New Mexico, celebrates its sixty-sixth birthday on Route 66. The entries will be judged by a group of Route 66 historians and film industry professionals which includes two-time Emmy winner Mike Abernathy. Screenings will take place in Moriarty’s 650-seat state-of-the-art Performing Arts Center.

Within the categories of 66 second shorts (66’ers), shorts and feature length the video artist are invited to tell a story or create an artistic piece which, if not addressing Route 66 directly, should contain reference to the art, lifestyle, Route 66 history and/or life and travels on the road.

NM Rt 66 Film Fest recommends submissions be of a “Family Friendly” nature and content but does not intend to stifle artistic content.
