Big Charity Screens @ Joy Theater

Hey you get another chance to checkout the New Orleans Documentary, Big Charity on Feb 27th & 28th.  We loved it! Support indie Filmmaking and check it out!

Founded as a hospital for the poor, Charity Hospital began in 1736 as just a small cottage built on the goodwill of a dying French merchant. Operated by nuns of The Daughters of Charity and serving the city of New Orleans for close to 300 years, it gradually transformed into an enormous public institution – into Big Charity – and a longstanding symbol of compassion, a seemingly eternal place of safety and a beacon of hope in the community. Today the towering art deco building, closed abruptly after Hurricane Katrina hit in August 2005, stands empty, and the community continues to suffer the devastating consequences of its absence. This documentary film includes never-before-seen footage and exclusive interviews to tell the story of Charity Hospital, from its roots to its controversial closing in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. From the firsthand accounts of healthcare providers and hospital employees who miraculously withstood the storm inside the hospital, to interviews with key players involved in the closing of Charity and the opening of New Orleans’ newest hospital, Big Charity shares the untold, true story around its closure and sheds new light on the sacrifices made for the sake of progress.

About

What exactly is Timecode:nola?

Timecode:nola is a non-profit 501c3 organization made up of filmmakers to promote filmmaking. We air short films and filmmaker interviews on television in and around the New Orleans area. We also have an annual film fest showcasing films of all lengths and genres. In addition we do monthly screenings of our show at various venues around to New Orleans.

How do I submit my short film to air on your tv show?
Click on the Submit page and fill out the form along with a link to film on Vimeo or YouTube. If it’s password protected put that on the form as well or we’ll never get to see this thing?

 

How will I know if I’m accepted?
We’ll send you a congratulatory email if we accept your film to air on our show. You will also be asked to submit a high res version of your film as well as digital files of any publicity stills, posters, artwork, and press (if applicable).

 

What kind of film can I submit and is there a specific length it needs to be?
We accept films of all genres – documentary, narrative, experimental, music video (filmmaker must have musical rights), and animation. The only requirement is it needs to be under 30 mins and you own the rights to the content in your film.

 

Will I be interviewed if my film is accepted?
Most likely yes! A signature of our show is not just screening shorts but also filmmaker interviews so we can put a face and an experience to the films we show. We try to get interviews with most of our filmmakers and if can’t get to you we may send you questions & ask you interview yourself!

 

What is Timecode:nola’s film festival?
Timecode:nola is rolling into it’s 3rd annual Independent Film Fest FF|3. We will choose a handful of some of the best short films from our tv show to screen in our shorts program. However, FF|3 will primarily be screening new films of all genres and all lengths that have not screened on our tv show yet. See more info on FF|3 HERE

 

If I already applied to the Timecode’s tv show, do I have to apply again to Timecode’s film festival to have my film screen there as well?
Yes. Timecode:NOLA’s Annual Indie Film Fest in New Orleans every April is a separate submission process & has a fee. To submit your film to our film fest CLICK HERE
