That translates to a burgeoning local film production scene, a deep pool of talent that is showcased every October at the Oscar-qualifying New Orleans Film Festival. 

The festival, produced since 1989 by the New Orleans Film Society, screens all sorts of local and global voices while providing an opportunity for new and established storytellers to premiere their latest works. 

Attended by thousands of producers, directors, writers, actors and industry professionals, the 10-day event also attracts film fanatics keen to see movies like “12 Years a Slave,” “Carol” and “Beasts of the Southern Wild” before their general release. And besides the industry networking, seminars and screenings, fest-goers are treated to a blockbuster list of events, parties and even a second line or two in true New Orleans style. 

The films are shown at various venues throughout the city. There are admissions charges to the various productions and the public is invited.

The Baroness de Pontalba & the Rise of Jackson Square @ The Cabildo

This tricentennial exhibition organized by the Louisiana State Museum and guest curator Randolph Delehanty, Ph.D. tells the city-defining story of Don Andrés Almonester and his formidable daughter, Micaela, the Baroness de Pontalba. It shows how a father’s philanthropy and a daughter’s determination created the urban heart and the architectural look of Old New Orleans. The exhibit draws on the landmark buildings and rich collections of the Louisiana State Museum, portraits, treasures from the Pontalba Family château in France, loans from other collections, and historic and commissioned photographs to revisualize New Orleans’ iconic urban core: Jackson Square, St. Louis Cathedral, the Cabildo, the Presbytère, and the twin Pontalba Buildings.
