The New Orleans Film Festival (NOFF) Community Partnership Program is designed as one of several ways NOFS offers no-cost and discounted in-person and virtual access to NOFF programming to communities in New Orleans who have income-based or other barriers to accessing arts programming. It also provides a way for us to foster connections for our audience with the great work of our local arts and cultural organizations.

As a NOFF Community Partner, we ask you to promote NOFF as a whole, or specific film(s) that resonate with your work and mission, to your email list and social media networks.

We provide our Community Partners with a NOFF media kit, free and discounted tickets to share, recognition for their partnership, and space to provide information about their work and organization.
