Conci Bergere Kenney Althouse, a 2007 graduate from Monte del Sol Charter School has been accepted to the Cinematography Conservatory Masters Program at the American Film Institute in Los Angeles, CA. At the age of 20, she is the youngest applicant to be accepted to this prestigious Institution.
As an independent filmmaker in Santa Fe, Conci has made dozens of films, including two feature films, which were accepted into the Santa Fe Film Festival as well as other prestigious film festivals.
American Film Institute trains the next generation of filmmakers at its world-renowned Conservatory. AFI is the birthplace for the creative minds behind classic films such as Saving Private Ryan, Schindlers List, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and Last Temptation of Christ.
A silent auction with music and hors d'oeuvres will be held at Warehouse 21 on June 24th at 5 PM. A large collection of fine art including paintings, photography, silver work and blown glass will be offered for auction. As a creative force in the Santa Fe Arts Community, many artists from Santa Fe and around the nation are donating their art to help Conci offset the sizable cost of attending this Masters Program.
The Santa Fe Community is invited to attend the silent auction on June 24 at 5 PM. This is an opportunity to help one of Santa Fe’s great young talents and bring the leading edge of the cinema arts back to Santa Fe. After graduating from AFI, Conci intends to return to Santa Fe to continue working with her independent film company, Sane Asylum Productions.
