True Orleans Film Fest Celebrates Non-Fiction



Are tired of the typical summer fare of paperback novels? This weekend, Shotgun Cinema’s True Orleans Film Festival will brush aside fiction in favor of three days of documentaries at UNO’s Nims Theatre. The event will feature five features, four panels, and lots of shorts. 


Today in NOLA: 6.15.15


Tonight is the perfect evening to take in some regular local gifts or check out a movie. On this day in 1910, Louisiana created Evangeline Parish, naming it after Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's epic poem about a young Acadian woman. More tonight:


Waving the Geek Flags: Jurassic World's JazzLand Makeover


Jurassic World managed to secure a spot in box office history after just 24 hours. The reboot of Steven Spielberg’s mid Nineties blockbusters raked in 82.8 million dollars on opening day, placing it this all time. However, locals will be more interested in the locale than the numbers. The theme park setting for the film is actually a made-over Six Flags New Orleans.


Silent Cinema: Indywood in Exile


Sadly, one local cinema is blurring the lines between silent movies and movies gone silent. Indywood, the popular art house theatre, announced that they will be temporarily closing their on Elysian Fields Avenue location and hosting a series of outdoor screenings while they sort out venue issues.


Before the Barbecue: Memorial Day Weekend Events


By Lucy Leonard

The weather this Memorial Day weekend (5.22-5.25) might seem hott, but this line-up of events is even hotter. New Orleans offers a myriad of activities spanning from rememberance to volleyball to help spice up this holiday weekend. 


Today in NOLA: 5.08.15


Get your seersucker ready for the Ogden’s annual sartorial soiree. Or, head up to City Park to see a movie or Solange at the penultimate Music Box performance. On this day in 1863, Union troops overtook Alexandria. Now, more to do tonight. 


Frame Game

Sync Up Film Turns the Focus on Industry



New Orleans is filled with some of the world’s best creative talent. Yet, the City often lags behind when it comes to actual industry and infrastructure to support the arts. Eight years ago, the Jazz and Heritage Foundation took some steps to remedy that situation by starting Sync Up and then later teaming up with NOVAC. The cinema portion is a three day conference and mini-fest that aims to focus on the production behind film (and provide lots of entertainment in the process).


Today in NOLA: 4.24.15


Today is the big day! The Fair Grounds open their gates for Jazz Fest this morning and the music begins. For those looking for something more mellow than the after-hour shows, there’s a great NOLA doc at Indywood and an evening event at NOMA. Also, on this day in 1877, reconstruction ended in Louisiana.


Timecode:NOLA Focuses on Indie Film at Fest


All fests do not involve music and rows of vendors. Timecode:NOLA’s latest project tends to skew more towards soundtracks and rows of sprockets. On Thursday (4.16), the Third Annual Independent Film Fest hits local screens.


Nick of Time: Films at FQF


French Quarter Fest is filled with music and food, but that’s not all. Throughout the weekend, many revelers will take a break from the sun and absorb some Crescent City culture on the silver screen.
