The Albuquerque Film & Media Experience (AFME) at Nob Hill has announced musician Thomas Dolby will open the week-long festival starting Monday, June 3, 2013 at the historic Lobo Theater. He will be showing excerpts of his first film, 'The Invisible Lighthouse,' to gauge audience reaction, fine tune the movie edits and get ready for the project’s completion later in 2013. Dolby will be discussing his learning experience on a Q&A panel and then perform live in front of a standing-room-only crowd.
"I am delighted to join the hordes of filmmakers and film fans that will be attending AFME”, said Thomas Dolby. “I know this is one of the foremost film festivals in the Southwest, and feel honored that I have been invited to take part on opening night."
