Once again, we are thrilled to partner with our friends at the New Orleans Film Society, as they present the 28th Annual New Orleans Film Festival.  We are excited this year to be at the festival in new ways – this year, not only as a partner throwing the Filmmaker Welcome Party for the 4th year in a row, but also as filmmakers!  Check out our NOFF events here:

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 12: Filmmaker Welcome Party!

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14:  Premiere of REFUGE at the PRYTANIA, 5PM!

REFUGE is a portrait of Phan, a Cambodian fisherman who escaped the Khmer Rouge Killing Fields as a child to resettle along the coast in Buras, Louisiana. Today, Phan and his community are faced with the possibility of becoming refugees again, this time from coastal erosion, rising sea levels, and state restoration programs that struggle to engage with affected communities. REFUGE is screening at the New Orleans Film Festival at the Pyrtania Theater on October 14th at 5 PM.
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18: Premiere of KEEPERS OF THE MOUND, at the Advocate Headquarters, 8PM!

KEEPERS OF THE MOUND is a short documentary film about a Native American family who cares for one of the many ancient earthen mounds threatened by the rapid disintegration of the Louisiana coastline.  With the threat of land loss looming and limited resources available for coastal restoration and protection, KEEPERS OF THE MOUND highlights indigenous communities’ fight to be considered in the cost-benefit-ratio of coastal protection. KEEPERS OF THE MOUND is screening at the New Orleans Film Festival at the Advocate Headquarters, October 18th at 8 PM.
