The Truth or Consequences Film Fiesta will be held at the El Cortez Theatre, which is also celebrating their grand re-opening (of a work in progress) with screenings, parties, panels, and celebrities in attendance.

The organizers of the 5th Annual T-or-C Film Fiesta are pleased to announce that several award-winning filmmakers are flying in from Los Angeles, New York and around the country to bring their movies to Truth or Consequences, as well as filmmakers from around the state.

The response has been overwhelming in relation to the T-or-C Film Fiesta. It looks like people are ready to get back into the theaters and see some great movies, and we’re ready for them!
