Our goals for Black Film Festival of New Orleans are two-fold. We are here to champion the accomplishment of film. It takes a lot of hands to complete a film or television project and we want to celebrate our filmmaking teams for bringing their vision to fruition. Locally, we’re focused on building a strong film community in New Orleans for today and beyond. We want our visiting filmmakers to feel at home, and we want them to keep in mind what we have to offer for their future creative endeavors.
BFFNO will also spotlight some of New Orleans’ most talented. Along with our New Orleans filmmakers block, we’ll have entertainment by local performers at our awards ceremony and field trips for the visiting filmmakers including an African American themed French Quarter walking tour by KnowNOLA tours.
The best thing about BFFNO is that it is and will always be free and open to the public! We simply want the New Orleans film community to have the best opportunity to succeed.
