Considered: NOFF's Audience Awards


After an intense series of screenings, the New Orleans Film Fest is finally over. Last week, the jury prizes were announced, but one final piece of (show) business remained. Last night, the fest released the results of their audience awards.


Stomp Shorts


The Ponderosa Stomp kicks off tonight and continues through Saturday (10.03). The roots heavy fest boasts the slogan, “Your favorite bands’ favorite bands.” The only problem with the fest’s esoteric, music-nerd heavy lineup is that it might be a little too obscure. In an effort to familiarize casual fans with some of the Stomp’s lesser known greats, organizers have released a series of short animated biographies.


Behind the Lens: 48 Hr. Film Project


The 48 Hour Film Project kicked off last Friday evening with teams receiving their instructions and picking their genres out of a hat. The groups gathered in the ballroom of Maison St. Charles, anxious to get started, and knowing that a hectic, sleepless 48 hours lay in store. Submissions of the four to seven minute films had to be submitted no later than 7:30p.m. Sunday.

On Thursday night, Elysian Fields saw two players in the NOLA arts scene re-emerge,  revamped and reinvigorated. Local comedians Andrew Polk and Joe Cardosi premiered their third show, a hybrid of stand-up and short films at the newly renovated Indywood Movie Theater.
