Timecode:nola’s mission is to nurture independent film and encourage alternative media formats including Super 8 film and PXL Vision as well as digital video and all film formats. We accept all genres including docs, features, shorts, music videos, student, and experimental film as well as skateboarding & extreme sports videos.
Our festival blends screenings, parties, art installations, live music, and workshops in venues around New Orleans so filmmakers and artists can meet and see other indie work. 2013 will bring even more categories of cinema to FF 2 videos while bringing together award-winning indie filmmakers and artists to celebrate filmmaking, art, and music.
Timecode:NOLA seeks to empower all filmmakers and artists, especially those working in underground, experimental, and alternative filmmaking formats. Timecode:NOLA believes its indie film fest should encapsulate the spirit of its city and reflect the unique, gritty, and creative culture of New Orleans itself.

TIMECODE:NOLA’S SUPER 8 ONE REEL CONTEST IS BACK!
Timecode:NOLA’s 3rd Annual Infamous Super 8 One Reel Contest premieres in front of a sold out crowd at One Eyed Jack’s in the French Quarter. Filmmakers of all experience levels answered the call to shoot 3 minutes of silent, black and white Super 8 movie film. There was no editing after the film was processed so everything had to be shot in the exact order it would be shown. The first time filmmakers got to see their films was in front of a raucous live audience. All films were projected whether beautiful or blank with a live piano player improving the score. New Orleans own Chris Trew was MC and live commenter for the packed house. Filmmaker Milena Martinovic won best Super 8 film winning a new Super 8 Camera from Pro8mm along with super 8 film stock & processing.
JOINT PICTURE PROJECT HUMIDITY SAT SEP 21ST 2013
Winning Humidity filmmaker Michael Yusko addresses the crowd.
Timecode:NOLA’s own Joint Picture Project premiered at FF|2 to another sold out crowd. This is where we throw out a theme & give all our ambitious filmmakers 3 weeks to make a 5 minute fiction short in New Orleans. We take the best 15 shorts and edit them into a concise feature-length film which premieres the Saturday night of Timecode:NOLA’s Indie Film Fest. This year we wanted filmmakers to explore that god awful humidity in New Orleans. Its summer time, the heat is rising and the air conditioners are humming. Tempers are flaring, crime is on the rise and love is in the air. We wanted 5 minute shorts where heat and humidity are the backdrop or catalyst for our films. Michael Yusko won the best short film and took home prize packages from Apex Post & 4:4:4 Camera.
