1. On July 14th NOVAC celebrated its 39th birthday by bringing you Watch My Movie!, an evening panel discussion designed to inform independent filmmakers on the latest trends and methods for marketing their films and sharing them with an audience. In this fluctuating market, indie filmmakers are looking toward alternatives to the larger studios for marketing and distribution.

    The Featured Panelists were:

    Gianna Chachere – Hamptons International Film Festival, Patois Film Festival

    Ira Deutchman – Emerging Pictures, Columbia University

    Andrew Mer – SnagFilms

    Janine Saunders – Workbook Project (100 Mornings)

    Todd Sklar – Range Life Entertainment (Exit Through The Gift Shop)

    Jolene Pinder – New Orleans Film Society and Film Festival

    Held at the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC), Watch My Movie! featured industry experts representing a range of backgrounds who discussed how filmmakers are navigating these ever-changing waters through a variety of approaches including theatrical, educational, online, VOD, national tours and more. Watch My Movie! panelists also spoke about film festival festivals and markets, packaging film and DIY models.

    After the discussion there was a small reception where NOVAC celebrated 39 years of connecting filmmakers to the community by enjoying light refreshments and raffling off some great items from New Orleans Film Society, Movie Maker Magazine, HBO Series Tremé, Kodak, Panavision, Entertainment Partners & Movie Magic Software, The National WWII and Ogden Museums, The New Orleans Opera and Ballet Associations, Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, local restaurants, cinemas, bookstores and more.
