Robert Redford is collaborating with the state of New Mexico to expand training for Native American and Hispanic filmmakers. The program, "Sundance in New Mexico," will be based at Los Luceros, a state-owned historic home along the Rio Grande. It will be used for programs and workshops.

The actor and director, who puts on the yearly Sundance Film Festival, says the program grew out of his long-standing love for the state and his commitment to furthering opportunities for American Indian and Hispanic filmmakers.

The collaboration begins this weekend with a panel discussion featuring director John Sayles and others in Santa Fe.
