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.
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.
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.
Patois Film Fest Returns: Lineup
Today, a film festival is returning after a three year hiatus. While much has changed about the city and world in that span, the need to address social and civil rights issues has not. Patois: New Orleans International Human Rights Film Festival takes aim at these issues through the lens of the camera.
Short-List: Louisiana at the Oscars
Tonight, the Academy Awards air on WGNO at 6:00p.m. Louisiana must have expended her supply of glitz and glamour during Carnival. Only one film with local tie-ins made the short-list.
Today in NOLA: 1.20.15
Today established local trumpeter Kermit Ruffins does his weekly thing at Bullet's. For those who want a night off from music, Siberia is hosting trivia night and Blue Ruin is playing at Indywood. On this day in 1973, Jerry Lee Lewis made his debut at the Grand Ole Opry. Lewis had promised to abstain from obscenities during the show, but he broke his promise.
Hollywood South Absent at Oscars
Hollywood South had a great run at the Oscars. First, there was the feel good story of The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. In 2013, Beasts of the Southern Wild received four nominations and even more cache in buzz. The following year, locally shot films like Twelve Years a Slave and Dallas Buyer’s Club dominated the awards. However, when nominations were released today (1.15), Louisiana was conspicuously missing.
