Las Cruces International Film Festival welcomes George Lopez

Las Cruces News

Students and members of the community filled the NMSU auditoriums on Thursday hoping to catch a glimpse of the actor and comedian George Lopez.

The event was all a part of the Las Cruces International Film Festival. Lopez was brought to the city not only to promote some of his past films, but his new upcoming one.

His new film ‘Walking with Herb’ was filmed in Las Cruces last fall.

Lopez says the film is “faith-based” and he knows it’s one “everyone will like”.

While at NMSU, Lopez did his best to give a background into his life and career as well as give advice to young college students.

The Las Cruces Film Fesitival will continue through Sunday evening.
