New Orleans Film Festival

International Film Festival.

About

New Orleans Film Festival (NOFF) has firmly established itself as one of the most reputable in the country. Last year, it was named by MovieMaker Magazine as one of the "25 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee," and was also named by Premium Beat as one of the "Fifteen Fests You Should Enter." Born in a city known for its eclecticism and artistic vibrance, NOFF seeks out bold and passionate storytellers. With top-notch programming in one of the world's most cinematic cities, NOFF serves up a dose of southern hospitality that's hard to beat.

Last year's festival saw 200 films screen over the course of eight days, and also hosted a number of panels and conversations, featuring representatives from major U.S. distributors (like Neal Block from Magnolia Pictures) and other leaders in the industry (like Michelle Satter, founder of the feature film program at Sundance). The festival drew more than 17,000 total attendees, including over 170 filmmakers who attended to show their work.
