Film and Photography Programs
The Lensic offers two photography and video programs for aspiring image-makers: Future Voices and Next Generation Native Film and Photography Festival.
Lensic Future Voices
Lensic Future Voices encourages students ages 12–18 across New Mexico to tell their stories through original photographs and short films. In partnership with Santa Fe Workshops, Future Voices provides high school and middle school students with the support they need to create high-quality projects that are judged in monthly contests and a year-end competition, all with cash prizes. In-class or virtual workshops, led by filmmaking and photography experts, are also available.
Next Generation Native Film and Photography Festival
Next Generation Native Film and Photography Festival is a juried program that showcases films and photography created by Native young people from New Mexico and beyond. Native creators ages 23 and under are invited to submit work. The deadline for submission is October 1, 2023.
