This program is supported in part by a Community Arts Grant made possible by the City of New Orleans. The grant is administered through the Arts Council of New Orleans. 

Welcome to our 23rd annual New Orleans Film Festival! 2012 marks a banner year for the the New Orleans Film Festival (NOFF). In April, MovieMaker Magazine named NOFF one of the "Top 25 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee." Apparently, filmmakers listened--we received more submissions than ever before, a staggering 1,250 films from around the world. Needless to say, this only made the task of curating this year's Festival incredibly challenging.
Last year, we introduced some new programming (i.e. keeping{SCORE}, OUTakes, Cine Latino) that drew engaged audiences and will hopefully find similar fans this year. We can't seem to stem the flow of ideas so we have a few new events to add to your NOFF schedule this year: a visit to the Cinema Reset exhibit created in partnership with the Contemporary Arts Center and a stop at one of our "Gather Round" informal conversations in the VIP Lounge. And do check out our panel descriptions to learn more about a stellar lineup of FREE panels exploring important issues in the film industry today.
OPENING NIGHT -- October 11 at the JOY THEATER
PaperboyThe week-long New Orleans Film Festival begins this Thursday, October 11, with the red-carpet premiere of the Louisiana-shot film The Paperboy, Lee Daniels' follow-up to his Oscar-winning film, Precious.
Advance tickets for this Opening Night Film are only available through the purchase of an All-Access Pass or a Deluxe Six Film Pass (click here to purchase passes).

Individual tickets for this screening go on sale the day of the event (October 11) at noon at the Joy Theater (located at 1200 Canal Street).
This year's Film Festival offers something for everyone, from alcohol-induced love stories like Smashed (featuring Octavia Spencer), to racy documentaries like Bettie Page Reveals All; from hit-man movies like The Iceman to hipster hiking flicks like Leave Me Like You Found Me.
And don't forget new films starring Melissa Leo (Francine), Wendell Pierce (Four), Christopher Walken (A Late Quartet), and Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook).Over the course of 8 days, we'll screen 204 films, host nearly a dozen free panels, and play host to 175+ visiting filmmakers and industry professionals.    Below is just a sampling of the many, many films in this year's lineup.
