LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - A new nonprofit organization hopes to attract some of New Mexico’s growing film industry to southern New Mexico.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reports (https://goo.gl/kA6Acb) that Film Las Cruces has recently launched a website and is searching for a new film liaison.

State Rep. Jeff Steinborn, Film Las Cruces president, says the group wants to build a film and entertainment arts workforce in the area to attract future productions.

Under an agreement, the city of Las Cruces will pay $95,000 per year for three years to allow Film Las Cruces to employ a full-time film liaison and run a film office to work with production companies.

In recent years, studios have launched a number of productions in Albuquerque and Santa Fe including AMC-TV’s “Better Call Saul” and Netflix’s “Longmire.”
