June, 21st is the final deadline to submit your film to the 30th New Orleans Film Festival (NOFF)

Next week is the final deadline to submit your film to the New Orleans Film Festival, produced annually since 1989 by the New Orleans Film Society to take the newest independent films to the city of New Orleans with the film festival and also a permanent schedule of screenings all year round.

Looking for original, audacious and thought-provoking films, NOFF is particularly interested in films from filmmakers whose perspectives are less often represented in film production (last year, more than 50% of the films were helmed by women and gender non-conforming filmmakers, and over 45% were helmed by filmmakers of color).

Qualifying festival for the Oscar® Awards in all three Academy®-accredited categories for short films: The recipients of the festival's Documentary Short Jury Award, Narrative Short Jury Award, and Animated Short Jury Award will be automatically eligible for consideration in their respective categories of the Academy Awards®.

Lastly, the Festival offers each year Jury Awards to films in 7 different categories. The grand total value of the awards given in 2018 was in excess of $90.000 in camera equipment, production services and editing and post-production software.

Do not hesitate and submit your film before next June, 21st!
