It’s officially fall and as Santa Feans know, October is one of our most beautiful months with crisp temperatures, fall color and so many exciting things to do as we ramp up to the holidays. Here are a few of our favorite things to do in October:
Let’s Go To The Movies, Santa Fe style.
The Santa Fe International Film Festival (SFiFF) is the premiere forum for international and independent cinema in northern New Mexico. Taking place over five days and nights in October, and focusing on artistic excellence, SFiFF has presented films ranging from Academy Award winners to undiscovered indie gems. This year, the festival dates are October 19 – 23, 2022, 10 a.m. – 11 p.m.
With five days and nights of premiere film screenings, filmmaker Q&As, award presentations, industry discussions, and nightly parties, SFiFF continues to bring world-class cinema and unparalleled independent filmmaking opportunities to various venues throughout downtown Santa Fe, including theaters, restaurants, and art galleries.
