MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The 6th Annual Big Easy International Film Festival seeks to bring the world of film to the amazing city of New Orleans while bringing the amazing variety of New Orleans music to the world. Giving filmmakers an opportunity to screen their work in what is the most creative city in the U.S., while providing a fall-time opportunity to experience some amazing Big Easy music.

A truly amazing experience awaits every filmmaker attending the Big Easy International Film and Music Festival! Two venues, one focusing on shorts, the other on feature films.


ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
When hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, it almost destroyed one of America's national treasures... the city of New Orleans. It was at that point when Laura Martone, the Co-Director of the Beverly Hills Shorts Festival, decided she wanted to do something to help bring the culture back to her home town. The Co-Directors also now live in New Orleans 9 months out of the year.

Our goal is to not only create a completely unique experience in the Crescent City, but to do something to help restore and possibly protect the city from future disasters... to do this, the Big Easy International Film Festival will be working with local and national organizations (like the Friends of New Orleans). Help us to keep the nations most original city, on the road to recovery!

We are going to make this festival a massive party... utilizing places like the French Quarter, the Big Easy will be a one-of-a-kind experience. Screening every type of film, from comedy to drama... from horror to documentary... from thriller to experimental!
