This year’s Santa Fe Film Festival tells us that “dreams are the sneak preview of the movies of our lives.” This is also the slogan of Dream Awake, a promotional campaign and photography project put together by SFFF board member Darrell Wilks and photographer Bill Stengel that shows 32 Santa Feans with their eyes closed. The project highlights the reverie-inducing qualities of film and speaks to the experience of finding refuge from routine within the darkened environment of the cinema.

Festival director Nani Rivera has been dreaming awake — or at least sleeping on her feet — for the last week or so while taking care of the festival’s final logistics. “Everything’s coming together just in time,” she told Pasatiempo. “It’s definitely challenging with the time limits and financial strain, but we’ve raised a lot of in-kind contributions. It’s been a miracle of support from the community. We have a quarter of a million dollars in our hands, so it’s just incredible what the community is doing to make this happen. It’s exciting. Everything’s getting worked out just in time. I’m not getting any sleep, but it’s great seeing everything come to fruition.”
