FRENCH QUARTER FEST 2014 FOOD, FUN, MUSIC, AND MOVIES AT FRENCH QUARTER FEST 2014 var PMalbum741407505 = [{ “src”: “/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/FQFsignLady.jpg”, “thumb”: “/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/FQFsignLady-300×200.jp

FRENCH QUARTER FEST 2014

FOOD, FUN, MUSIC, AND MOVIES AT FRENCH QUARTER FEST 2014

Timecode:NOLA and French Quarter Fest partnered up once again to screen local films highlighting Louisiana’s music and culture during French Quarter Fest 2014. This year the screenings were held in front of packed crowds in the newly renovated Le Petit Theater in Jackson Square during the festival’s record breaking attendance this spring. Almost every film was followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers, cast, and crew. This gave the audience a unique opportunity to learn more about the films along with Louisiana heritage.

Highlights this year included a packed house to see the James Booker documentary Bayou Maharajah. Director Lily Keber and editors Tim Watson & Aimee Toledano were on hand for a talkback after the film. If you missed the film you can still see it on April 29th, 2014 at a fundraiser & James Booker tribute show for Bayou Maharajah at Southport Music HallLive music by musicians who worked with and were friends with the great James Booker.

Audience

Another great screening included The Whole Gritty City with an enthusiastic crowd who were enthralled by the documentary focused on marching bands in New Orleans and the violence many children encounter growing up. The screening was followed by an incredible Q&A with Roots of Music founder Derrick Tabb, Landry Walker High School Band Director Wilbert Rawlins, and student trumpeter prodigy Bear Williams, all featured in the film. Bear is one of 19 students slated to go on a school trip to visit & play in Paris this summer. During the Q&A, when band director Rawlins mentioned they were still raising money for the last 5 students to go on the trip, one audience member volunteered to pay for Bear’s $1,500 ticket! Within 5 minutes other audience members excitedly joined in and raised another $1,500 for another student to go. It was truly an incredible experience.

If you are interested in helping the rest of the students get to Paris, check out the Landry Walker High School website.  They will be grateful for any size donations. The Roots of Music, based in the French Quarter, is also holding a fundraiser to support their music students. ‘The Roots of Music empowers the youth of New Orleans through music education, academic support, and mentorship while preserving and promoting the unique musical and cultural heritage of our city’.  Check out their website to see how you can sponsor a student musician.

Our weekend also featured some New Orleans documentary classics like Les Blank’s Always For Pleasure filmed during parade season in 1978 and Rick Dulaup’s Ruthie The Duck Girl which hasn’t screened in 18 years about one of New Orleans most eccentric women in the French Quarter. We also screened a Timecode:NOLA favorite Yeah You Rite filmed in 1984 about the unique speech and accents in New Orleans. The filmmakers Louis Alvarez and Andrew Kolker were in town for a Q&A after the screening. Louis & Andrew were in town filming Buckwheat Zydeco earlier in the week on a project entitled Buckwheat’s World to help support and raise awareness of the legendary Zydeco musician. Show your support for Buckwheat & see more about their new project here.

Big Charity Screens @ Joy Theater 26/02/2015

Big Charity Screens @ Joy Theater

Timecode_nola_film_festival_big-charity_new_orleans_01

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.

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
