Free Screenings at the 2017 New Orleans Film Festival

The New Orleans Film Society discovers, cultivates, and amplifies diverse voices of filmmakers who tell the stories of our time. NOFS produces the Academy-accredited New Orleans Film Festival annually and to share transformative cinematic experiences with audiences. Of the films selected to be included in the 2017 Festival lineup, 53 percent are from female directors and 45 percent are from directors of color. Paste Magazine praised the festival for offering “a platform to voices that still fight to be heard.”

As part of our commitment to expanding access to the arts, The Helis Foundation is supporting a strand of free screenings and events throughout the 2017 New Orleans Film Festival:
