Not All Movie Stars Shine In Front Of The Camera

While we’re celebrating more than 200 talented filmmakers who are attending and showing here at the festival, we would like to take a moment to honor these industry pioneers.

Teddy and Doris Solomon built a theatre empire. What began as after-school work in his family’s silent movie house became an active career in the industry that spanned seven decades. With Doris by his side, Teddy grew his family’s single movie screen into more than 600 theaters and drive-ins spread across the country. He was elected president of the National Association of Theatre Owners, where he led the reform of film bidding practices that continue to shape the industry. He built and opened the first stadiumstyle megaplex in Greater New Orleans. He was also the catalyst that established the popular tax incentive programs for filmmakers that have made Louisiana known as “Hollywood South.” And, nearly a quarter of a century ago, Teddy and Doris helped start the New Orleans Film Society. What inspired them to become so involved and invested in the movie business? It was the talent, passion and hard work of filmmakers like you. It gave Teddy and Doris great joy to share their love for movies with countless others. Because when the lights dim and the projector rolls in a darkened theater... it’s pure magic.

HOW TO FEST FAQS 4

>Do I have to pick up a physical pass at the box office if I purchased it online? If you purchased an All-Access Pass, you must pick up your pass at the Main Box Office (at the CAC, 900 Camp Street). Please wear your All-Access Pass to all NOFF events as this pass will grant you entry to parties, receptions, the Filmmaker Lounge, and the priority access line for all screenings. If you purchased a Six Film Pass or a Deluxe Six Film Pass, you are not required to present a pass. You may just print your reserved tickets at home and present them at the door. >I have an All-Access Pass. Can I simply flash my badge and get into a movie? We recommend that all passholders reserve tickets for all screenings in advance, but if there is availability at the venue, All-Access Passholders can enter the screening, simply by having the barcode on their pass scanned. >Can I share my Festival Pass? No. All passes (All-Access, Six Film Deluxe, and Six Film) are non-transferable. Your name will be written on your pass, and ID may be required when securing tickets. Your pass entitles you to only one ticket per individual screening (for All-Access, Six Film and Deluxe Six Film Passes). The only pass that may be shared is a “Guest of” pass that is an option for festival sponsors and dual NOFS memberships. >Can I get student rush tickets in advance? No. These tickets will go on sale only after all regular ticketholders are seated in a theatre and open seats remain. You must present a valid student ID to be able to purchase rush tickets. >Why can’t I purchase an individual ticket online for Opening Night? We are excited about holding our Opening Night screening at the Civic Theatre. However, the demand for this event far exceeds the venue’s capacity. Attending NOFF filmmakers, NOFF sponsors, Film Society donors (Producers Circle, Movie Mogul, and Scene Stealer members), and All-Access passholders have priority access to this event. Only All-Access Passholders may claim a ticket for Opening Night in advance. Given the anticipated demand for this event, we highly recommend that All-Access passholders reserve tickets in advance to avoid waiting in line or arriving too late to secure a seat. These tickets are available on a first-come first-serve basis to All-Access Passholders. You may reserve a ticket online or at the Main Box Office. To guarantee a seat, you MUST reserve one in advance. We do anticipate selling a limited number of General Admission tickets at the door, based on availability. The Civic Theatre Box Office will open at 6:00 p.m. at which time customers may begin lining up for these limited tickets. Any available seats will be sold shortly before the film begins. >I was told that no more tickets were being sold to a movie I really want to see? Is there any way to still get tickets? Usually, the answer is yes. Even though all tickets in a given theatre may be reserved, there are usually tickets that go unclaimed. We strongly recommend that you show up for the screening and inquire at the box office for a waitlist number—these will start being handed out 30 minutes before the start of the film and will be numbered (the first person requesting one will have a “1” on their card, the second person a “2”). Five minutes before the start of the film, we will begin selling unclaimed tickets to waitlist number holders in sequential order. (If you are not there when waitlist numbers are called, you forfeit your place in line to purchase an unclaimed ticket.) In general, never give up hope until the venue manager announces that the screening is at capacity and turns away those with waitlist numbers. >I want to purchase tickets online in advance, but I don’t have a printer at home. What do I do? You may still purchase tickets online and visit any NOFF Box Office to have your tickets printed. Simply present a photo I.D. or an NOFS membership card. Each ticket will have a unique barcode, and may only be scanned once for admission. >What methods of payment are accepted at the Festival Box Offices? All Festival Box Offices accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Card and cash. Checks are not accepted. >I purchased a Festival Pass, but I lost it. Can I get a new one? No. There are no replacements for lost passes.

>I can’t find my Print-at-Home tickets. What do I do? Visit any NOFF Box Office and upon presenting your photo I.D. or NOFS membership card your tickets will be re-printed. >I’m a NOFS member. How many tickets may I reserve at the member price for an individual screening? You may reserve only one ticket per screening at the member price. Encourage your friends and family to join NOFS and they too can take advantage of the member discount! >What if I am late to the screening? To guarantee seating, you must be at the venue five minutes before the start of the film, even if you have an actual ticket. If you are not at the venue five minutes beforehand, there is no guarantee you will be able to get in the theatre and your purchase will not be refunded. We will start to sell all unclaimed seats in the venue starting five minutes before the start of the film. >Are venues accessible? All venues are wheelchair accessible. >Can I get a refund or exchange for a ticket that I’ve purchased? No, all ticket and pass sales are final. There are no refunds or exchanges. >I don’t have an All-Access Pass but I would like to attend NOFF Parties. Can I purchase tickets to get into Festival parties? Consult the Parties and Events section (pages 16-17) to learn more about which parties are open to the general public. >Why is there a barcode on my pass? We will have scanners at all Festival events in order to scan the passes of all attendees. This enables us to track Festival attendance more precisely. >How do I use the barcode on my membership card? When buying tickets and passes at the box office, simply present your membership card and it will be scanned to access your member account. All purchases will be attached to your individual account. You will then be able to see your purchase history when accessing your member account online. >Are my member number and pass number the same? Producers Circle, Movie Moguls, Screen Idols, and Scene Stealers will be able to use their member number as their pass number. All other levels of membership have a separate pass number from their member number. When you login online, you will be able to choose pass or membership access. Choose pass access to reserve tickets.

WHAT’S DIFFERENT THIS YEAR? > Purchasing tickets through the NOFF Mobile App FREE for iPhone users at www.neworleansfilmsociety.org/app/ > Discounted rush tickets for students, based on availability > Deluxe Six-Film Pass will include the Closing Night Movie (not Opening Night) > Scanning tickets on mobile devices will not be an option > Each pass will have an individual barcode that can be scanned > Pass number will be the same as your NOFS membership number > New member cards can be scanned at the box office to access member’s account

Louisiana’s role as an alternative to the traditional centers of film and television production has been much ballyhooed by both local and national media in the past several years, even catching the eye of travel reporters across the pond, with the BBC showcasing Louisiana’s production boom this past August. Having succeeded at attracting large-scale film productions, now we must pursue the best direction forward: how can the filmmakers, business owners, and legislators involved in our industry build on this promising start while ensuring sustainability in the years to come? Senate Resolution 132, adopted during the recent legislative session, created the Entertainment Industry Advisory Commission and empowered it to make official suggestions by 2015 for ways to make the film and entertainment industry in Louisiana more self-sustaining. This roundtable seeks to kick off the work of the Commission by eliciting ideas and suggestions from the public. Be a part of the conversation and have your ideas heard.

When a region is in the grip of a disaster, there is a natural call to tell stories of destruction and survival, and through them find the power, the political positioning, and the humanity to rebuild, restore, and reclaim home. How do we find a place for these stories as acts of resurgence alongside the brick-and-mortar projects of a material recovery? Can films and interactive online digital projects, long-form journalism, non-fiction and fiction alike, help communities find their voice, become more resilient, and prepare for the next disaster? This panel is an opportunity to explore the call of the story—from the perspective of the filmmakers adding to the growing body of post-disaster media-making in the Gulf and the funders who supported their projects.

This panel explores the burgeoning field of interactive documentary and how it breaks boundaries to engage audiences in new and provocative ways. The discussion will feature Luisa Dantas, producer/director of LandofOpportunity, an upcoming interactive video platform featuring multimedia narratives about urban America through the lens of post-Katrina New Orleans. Additional topics include navigating the transition from traditional “linear” filmmaking to interactive web-based content, and the collaboration between filmmakers and technologists.

COME HELL OR HIGH WATER:

DIR: Rebecca Marshall Ferris, Jason Ferris PROD: Kathleen Ledet DP: Jason Ferris ED: Bryan Gunnar Cole, Fiona Otway

DIRECTOR: Roman Polanski WRITER: Robert Towne PROD: Robert Evans DP: John Alonzo ED: Sam O’Steen

DIR/DP: Leah Mahan PROD: Jane Greenberg ED: Jane Greenberg (co-editors: Bill Anderson, Dawn Logsdon)

For 170 years, a Native American Cajun community has occupied Isle de Jean Charles, a tiny island deep in the bayous of south Louisiana. They have fished, hunted, and lived off the land. Now the land that has sustained them for generations is vanishing before their eyes. Years of gas and oil exploration have ravaged the surrounding marsh, leaving the island defenseless against the ocean tides that will eventually destroy it. As Chief Albert Naquin desperately looks for a way to bring his tribe together on higher ground, those that remain on the island cling to the hope that they can stay.

It’s the film that cemented Jack Nicholson’s reputation as the best American actor of his generation, and it was the last film Roman Polanski would make before he fled the country in disgrace. Now, almost 40 years later, this 1974 release is hailed as “the greatest film ever made” by a distinguished panel of critics from the British journals The Guardian (quoted above) and The Observer.

Filmmakers Rebecca Marshall Ferris and Jason Ferris spent three years documenting life on Isle de Jean Charles, immersing themselves in the lives and daily dramas of the families that call this place home. At what point will they finally be forced off their sacred land? And at what point will other coastal communities realize that they are next to be washed away? >Join us for a reception celebrating the film’s world premiere immediately following the screening, from 3:45-4:30, in the CAC atrium, sponsored by Chicken & Egg Pictures.

Originally titled Water and Power (canny use of a double meaning, but not so poetically evocative as Chinatown), the scenario by Robert Towne has become a classic of the well-constructed screenplay, what now seems like mostly a lost art. In classic noir fashion, private investigator J.J. Gites (Nicholson) is hired by a mysterious woman (Faye Dunaway) to spy on the chief engineer for the Los Angeles water department who she claims is her husband and which eventually will lead to the uncovering of secrets both personal and public. > Sunday, October 13, 10:00 a.m. Prytania Theatre > Tuesday, October 15, 9:30 p.m. Prytania Theatre > Wednesday, October 16, 10:00 a.m. Prytania Theatre

Rebecca Marshall Ferris has been working in documentary films since 1998. Her film Miller’s Tale was produced by ITVS and broadcast on PBS. Jason Ferris began his career in NY with the international PBS series Wide Angle. He and Rebecca founded Cottage Films in 2006.

Come Hell Or High Water follows the painful but inspiring journey of Derrick Evans, who moves home to coastal Mississippi when the graves of his ancestors are bulldozed to make way for the sprawling city of Gulfport. Over the course of a decade, Derrick and his neighbors stand up to powerful corporate interests and politicians and face the twin disasters of Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil spill in their struggle for environmental justice and self-determination. Turkey Creek residents are descendants of emancipated slaves who settled on the Gulf Coast in the 1860s. They have been stewards of the creek’s rich wetland habitat for generations, and have farmed, fished, hunted, and been baptized along its banks. The story begins when Turkey Creek residents attempt to stop a development that would fill hundreds of acres in the watershed. The mayor of Gulfport calls the protestors “dumb bastards” for standing in the way of progress. Turkey Creek residents and allies succeed in halting the development, only to see their victory unravel after Hurricane Katrina. >Join us for a reception celebrating the film’s world premiere before the screening, from 3:45–4:30 p.m. in the CAC atrium, sponsored by Chicken & Egg Pictures. >Following the film will be a panel discussion with the director, subject Derrick Evans (representing Turkey Creek Community Initiatives), and Reilly Morse (Mississippi Center for Justice), to be moderated by filmmaker Luisa Dantas. > Scheduled to attend: director Leah Mahan, film subject Derrick Evans, and co-editor Dawn Logsdon

ROMAN POLANSKI Roman Polanski’s first feature film, Knife in the Water (1962), appeared on the cover of TIME magazine as illustration for its story on that year’s first New York Film Festival. His subsequent films, including Rosemary’s Baby and Chinatown established him as a leading director of his generation. He won an Oscar in 2003 for his direction of The Pianist.

LEAH MAHAN Leah Mahan’s documentary Sweet Old Song was nominated by the Directors Guild of America for Outstanding Directorial Achievement and screened at Roger Ebert’s Overlooked Film Festival.

CRYSTAL FAIRY

DEAR MR. WATTERSON

DIR/WRITER: Sebastián Silva PROD: Juan de Dios Larrain, Pablo Larrain CAM: Cristian Petit-Laurent ED: Sebastian Silva, Sofia Subercaseaux, Diego Macho

DIR/ED: Joel Allen Schroeder PROD: Christopher Browne, Matt Mcusic, Joel Allen Schroeder DP: Andrew Waruszewski

When Jamie invites a complete stranger to come along on a road trip to the north of Chile with his Chilean friend Champa and two of his younger brothers, he fails to realize that this woman—a fellow American who goes by the name of Crystal Fairy—is ready and willing to accept any invitation that comes her way. Jamie´s acid and self-absorbed personality clashes with Crystal Fairy´s free and esoteric nature as all five of them head into the Atacama Desert with the concise mission of drinking a San Pedro cactus for a mescalinefueled psychedelic trip. As the journey unfolds and the traveling companions get to know each other better, Jamie learns that he must be more accepting of others, while Crystal finds the way to accept herself. Starring Michael Cera and Gabby Hoffman as the Crystal Fairy. Winner of the Best Director (World Cinema) Award at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. > Saturday, October 12, 9:00 p.m. Chalmette Movies > Monday, October 14, 9:00 p.m. Chalmette Movies > Thursday, October 17, 9:00 p.m. Chalmette Movies

Calvin & Hobbes took center stage immediately when it appeared in newspaper comics across the country in 1985. The funny pages were a big part of popular culture, and it was hard to find a comics reader who didn’t like Calvin & Hobbes. A decade later, when Bill Watterson retired his strip, millions of readers felt the void left by the sudden departure of Calvin and his beloved tiger, and many fans would never find a satisfactory replacement. In his retirement, as he did during his career, Mr. Watterson has steadfastly declined to license his beloved Calvin and Hobbes characters for any wider commercial purposes, a principled decision that left perhaps hundreds of millions of dollars on the table. It has now been 18 years since the end of the Calvin & Hobbes era. Bill Watterson has kept an extremely low profile during this time, living a very private life in Ohio. Despite his quiet lifestyle, he is remembered and appreciated daily by fans who still enjoy his amazing collection of work.

Dear Mr. Watterson is not a quest to find Bill Watterson, or to invade his privacy. It is an exploration to discover why his “simple” comic strip has made such an impact on so many readers, and why it still means so much to us today. The screening will include a special introduction from Michael Tisserand, former editor of Gambit Weekly who is currently working on a biography of George Herriman, New Orleans–born cartoonist whose Krazy Kat cartoons were hugely influential on later cartoonists like Bill Watterson. > Monday, October 14, 7:00 p.m. Chalmette Movies

He also directed Magic Magic, which also premiered at Sundance this year.

JOEL ALLEN SCHROEDER Joel Allen Schroeder grew up reading Calvin & Hobbes in the Post-Crescent newspaper in Appleton, Wisconsin, identifying in particular to Calvin’s imagination and love of snow. He attended the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts and now resides in Los Angeles with his wife and their two greyhounds.

Take in some classic Coen Brothers fare under the stars with this special screening of the 1987 classic starring New Orleans bon vivant Nicolas Cage. Vowing to go straight, a convenience store bandit (Cage) proposes marriage to the police department’s photographer (Holly Hunter). All is wedded bliss until they discover she’s unable to get pregnant and are turned down by every adoption agency in town. It does not take long before they realize the only solution is to kidnap one of the town’s celebrated quintuplets and hit the road! Bring a chair or blanket and get comfy!

Not All Movie Stars Shine In Front Of The Camera

While we’re celebrating more than 200 talented filmmakers who are attending and showing here at the festival, we would like to take a moment to honor these industry pioneers.

Teddy and Doris Solomon built a theatre empire. What began as after-school work in his family’s silent movie house became an active career in the industry that spanned seven decades. With Doris by his side, Teddy grew his family’s single movie screen into more than 600 theaters and drive-ins spread across the country. He was elected president of the National Association of Theatre Owners, where he led the reform of film bidding practices that continue to shape the industry. He built and opened the first stadiumstyle megaplex in Greater New Orleans. He was also the catalyst that established the popular tax incentive programs for filmmakers that have made Louisiana known as “Hollywood South.” And, nearly a quarter of a century ago, Teddy and Doris helped start the New Orleans Film Society. What inspired them to become so involved and invested in the movie business? It was the talent, passion and hard work of filmmakers like you. It gave Teddy and Doris great joy to share their love for movies with countless others. Because when the lights dim and the projector rolls in a darkened theater... it’s pure magic.
