Taos Talking Pictures was a not-for-profit corporation registered with the State of New Mexico in 1994 by Joshua Bryant, Phillip Kirk and Attorney Stephen Rose for the purpose of producing The Taos Talking Picture Festival, which premiered in April 1995. The festival was widely known and respected[citation needed] for its innovative programming and its Media Forum. After four years it was named by writer Chris Gore as one of the top ten film festivals in the world.[citation needed]

In the unsettled national climate after the attack on The World Trade Towers, Taos Talking Pictures found it more and more difficult to raise enough funding to continue its work.[citation needed] It folded The Taos Talking Picture Festival in 2003.

The original Taos Talking Pictures is not connected to and bears no resemblance to Taos Talking Pictures, Ltd., which is a for-profit operation.
