The 33rd annual, Oscar-qualifying New Orleans Film Festival takes place November 3-8, 2022 in venues across the city with in-person events, parties, panels, filmmaker pitches, and much more!

The majority of the lineup will also be accessible via NOFF Virtual Cinema globally between November 3-13, 2022. Geo-restrictions apply to some screenings.

NOFF brings together 170+ films and hosts filmmakers in New Orleans each year celebrating works of emerging and established filmmakers from New Orleans, Louisiana, the South, and beyond. Audiences get a chance to meet filmmakers in person at talkback sessions after screenings while filmmakers get to network with each other and industry professionals flying in from Los Angeles and New York to discover emerging talent. It’s the best time of the year for film lovers who like to discover the works of storytellers first hand, meet fellow film buffs mingling at festival venues and parties to talk film all festival long.

The NOFS welcomes all journalist and media representatives to the NOFF. To request press accreditation, apply here.
