Just when you think you’re full up on the back beats, world music, and crawfish pies that Jazz Fest has in store, this year’s Sync Up team and the crew at NOVAC want you to save some room for a little home-grown cinema. As an outgrowth of last year’s successful Sync Up conference, originally designed as an entertainment industry event to coincide with Jazz Fest, this year the conference will include a special component to celebrate Louisiana films and filmmakers at Sync Up Cinema.
Some of the films to screen are the much anticipated documentary Tchoupitoulas by brothers Bill and Turner Ross as well as the everyone’s favorite Academy Award-winning short, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore by Louisiana’s own William Joyce and Brandon Oldenburg. All of the films will screen on April 30th and May 1st in the Stern Auditorium at the New Orleans Museum of Art. And put away those Brass Passes, guys because admission to Sync Up Cinema is free and no advance registration is required. For a complete screening schedule click here.
Sync Up Cinema is made possible with support from:
