On Fathers Day weekend, June 13-15, 2008, there will be a Reel Fathers’ Film Festival in Santa Fe. The festival’s purpose is to raise awareness of the issue and value of fatherhood and to show movies that show fathers in a positive light. Also the festival wants to make movies available to those
that may not normally go to see these kind of movies, i.e. young, disadvantaged, fathers and families.

There will not only be movies but also a celebration for fathers and families, probably at the Children’s Museum, on Sunday 15th . The organizers have asked me to contact the NMMW network to see if any good men are interested in being connected, informed, or would like to be involved in some way. The Young Fathers Project will be participating in the festival and I would love to have any of you involved too.

Please contact me directly at if you are interested.
Thanks so much.

We are starting to plan for the 2007 Father and Daughter weekend, taking place the first weekend in June, June 1st 2nd and 3rd. Our first planning meeting will be help in Santa Fe on March 25th at 11:00am. We will have a conference call number set up for all those who cannot attend in person. We would love, and need, your participation to make this as memorable and heartfelt as the first two weekends. Please RSVP to me, Barry McIntosh, if you plan on attending the weekend and RSVP me if you plan on participating in the planning meeting and I will get you directions and/or the conference call number.

My email is  I hope all are well and hopefully we will see you soon.
