The Santa Fe Film Institute received a $20,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts that will be used for the Santa Fe International Film Festival.

The funding will support free public programming at the festival, which the institute presents, that will run Oct. 18-22, as well as filmmaker honoraria, visiting artist travel and youth initiatives like SFiFF Student Day, institute operations manager Stephanie Love-Riner said.

This is the fourth year in a row the institute has received NEA funding, now totaling $75,000. The NEA grant is typically the largest the institute receives.
