Lights, camera, action!

For the film buffs in New Orleans (or anyone that is looking for a fun night out), the New Orleans Film Festival is almost here.

The week of Oct. 10-17, be sure to check out this annual event held by the New Orleans Film Society to see rookie and veteran filmmakers premiere their latest works. The showings include full-length features, shorts, and animation, as well as music videos.

The New Orleans Film Festival has already established quite a history here in the Crescent City. From its beginnings in 1989, it has grown into one of America’s major film festivals, attracting thousands of producers, writers, and directors from the industry.

The showings are held at various theaters across New Orleans, including the theater at Canal Place, the Joy Theater, and the Prytania. Admission to each show varies with the venue. Be sure to arrive early to get a good seat!

The festival is a nonprofit cultural organization dedicated to providing audiences access to a variety of films and videos. For anyone interested in joining the industry, there will be a series of mentor sessions, workshops, and panel discussions featuring industry leaders. All of these events are open to the public!

I highly encourage you to attend multiple premieres throughout the week. Each showing provides a unique look into culture, controversy, and creativity that truly demonstrates why filmmaking is an art.

From all of us at Harmon, Smith & Vourvoulias, LLC, we hope you have a great night out at the New Orleans Film Festival.
