SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — The New Mexico Film Office will be getting a new director.
State officials announced Tuesday that the city of Albuquerque’s film liaison will take over the post in early March.
Amber Dodson will replace Todd Christensen, a long-time locations manager who will be returning to the private sector.
Under Dodson’s leadership, Albuquerque issued a record 448 film permits in 2019.
The growth came as Netflix and NBCUniversal ramped up production at their studios in Albuquerque.
Prior to being the city’s film liaison, she worked in Hollywood in film production, business development and marketing and advertising.
