Panels will be held at Three Keys, located at the Ace Hotel New Orleans (600 Carondelet St, New Orleans, LA 70130)

Thursday, October 12- Sunday, October 15, 2017

The schedule will be announced in September.

Free and open to the public, NOFF’s panels let audiences hear from the filmmakers and professionals that are shaping the state of the art and industry. Previous editions have included conversations with directors like David Fincher and Godfrey Reggio, as well as special focuses on topics like virtual reality and the state of indie filmmaking on the ground in New Orleans.


Designed for the knowledge-hungry emerging filmmaker, NOFF’s Roundtables invite representatives from all sectors of the craft into an intimate setting. Past Roundtable guests have included staff from the Tribeca Film Institute and writers from TBS’s Search Party.
