New Orleans Film Festival

NAME OF FESTIVAL: New Orleans Film Festival

SINCE: 1989

WHERE: New Orleans, Louisiana


The Oscar®-qualifying New Orleans Film Festival has firmly established itself on the regional film fest circuit as one of the most reputable in the country. It was named by MovieMaker Magazine as one of the "25 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee" in their 2012, 2013, and 2014 editions, and it was also named by Premium Beat as one of the "Fifteen Fests You Should Enter."

New Orleans shines ever brighter as an epicenter of culture and creativity during the New Orleans Film Festival, with 500+ filmmakers from every corner of the world in attendance at 220+ films. We see our greatest impact in the exchange of ideas that occurs when over 35,000 people gather over the course of 8 days to champion film in New Orleans and engage with visionary films, directors, and other film lovers. NOFF is one of the few film festivals that is Oscar®-qualifying in all three Academy-accredited categories.
