About the Southwest Film Center


The ASUNM Southwest Film Center is an organization dedicated to bringing UNM students the best in arthouse, experimental, foreign, cult and independent cinema. SWFC is located on the lower level of UNM's Student Union Building, and shows films Thursday-Sunday throughout the semester. We are more than a theater, stay tuned to this page and our social media to get involved with programs for the Spring 2021 semester.
