We are proud to announce that the Big Easy will be holding its Opening Night Party at the Kerry Irish Pub (331 Decatur Blvd) in the French Quarter. We will be screening all films at the newly opened Indywood Theater (628 Elysian Fields) in the Marigny.

The Big Easy might not be the biggest festival in the country, but we are the best destination... Our city is an amazing place to screen your films! Who doesn't want to come to New Orleans... amazing music, outstanding food, and appreciative audiences... and did we mention the music and food?

Filmmakers who attend our festival have a one of a kind experience that they'll treasure... and if you are not careful, Hollywood South (that's us) will capture your soul... and you won't ever want to go home!
