Welcome home.

More than just a rental space--a community, a networking place, a place to belong--welcome to the home for our NM Film Family. 

Created specifically for NM Filmmakers, Katharsis Studios is a place to create, to network, to dream. 

Our studios are available for filming, photography, classes, and events, and between the hours of 9am-9pm, open to network, collaborate and dream--no appointment needed. 

What we envisioned when we opened our doors was the creation of a place where filmmakers could gather and bump elbows with each other on just a regular day. Bring your laptop and settle into one of our hotdesks while you write your script or edit your next project. Sip some coffee or tea and collaborate with whoever else comes through. Hold yourself accountable to writing hours or actively working your craft.  

Join one of our writing rooms, workshops, or classes--and then stick around before or after to work on your next project. Take advantage of our editing bays or brainstorm project ideas to submit for our next round of production grants. 

Much more than a venue rental or location--Katharsis Studios is home for New Mexico Filmmakers. Welcome home.

Book time in any of our studios with the click of a button. Bookings are scheduled through a Calendly link for each calendar and can even be booked same day or as a walk-in (subject to availability) during any of our open hours (9am-9pm Monday-Saturday). Drop in rates are not as affordable as membership rates, but do not require any commitment.

1 for 1 Studio Hours Program: 

In an effort to make our resources truly accessible, we offer a volunteer program. You do not need to demonstrate financial need to qualify. For every hour you (or an adult on your behalf) volunteer, you receive an hour of credit in our self-tape or voiceover studios OR $15 in credit toward any class, workshop, or tuition. Excludes Filmmaker Excursions. Volunteers must be 16 years of age, however, an adult can volunteer hours for themselves or another person. Volunteers complete a variety of tasks, from running the reception desk and helping keep the space tidy to setting up and running film equipment, basic editing, updating Actor's Access accounts, being readers for auditions, helping with NM Tax rebates, castings, and in studio and on-location productions. 

Interested in volunteering? Get started by booking a tour to check out the space and meet with our volunteer coordinator! 

Want to check it out? Drop by during our open hours OR book a tour to meet with one of our production coordinators to discuss your individual or project needs.
