Jason Reitman‘s “Juno” kicked off the 8th Santa Fe Film Festival Wednesday night in New Mexico, ushering a four day event that will screen 200 features and shorts in a variety of genres, themes and topics in 80 programs. “Grace is Gone” by James C. Strouse will close the event Sunday. Other highlights include Anton Corbijn‘s “Control,” as well as Cannes winners “4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days” by Christian Mungiu and Julian Schnabel‘s “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.” “New Mexico has been a hot-bed of film production the past few years with the introduction of the state tax incentives and this year we have received more attention than ever from the major studios to offer us amazing titles for our galas,” commented festival founder and executive director Jon Bowman in a statement.
