Albuquerque's Film History

 

Albuquerque, New Mexico is no stranger to the movie industry.  In fact, films have been being produced in Albuquerque since the late 19th Century. In addition to our perfect weather (310 days of sunshine!), talented production community and ability to double as nearly any other U.S. location, the state of New Mexico offers some of the nation’s most aggressive financial incentives in the industry. As such, the state has become a very popular place to produce movies and television shows. Below is just a sampling of some of the film work that’s been done in our city. To view a full list of Albuquerque film credits, please visit the Albuquerque Film Office website.
