Held annually in March, the New Orleans Film Society Gala is a party for the books. Named one of New Orleans’ top parties of 2015 by, the event celebrates cinema like never before – craft cocktails, live music, award-winning restaurants, keynote honorees and a live auction add to the unforgettable night.

Each year, the New Orleans Film Society honors a noted figure in the film industry, especially the Louisiana film industry. Past Galas have honored the cast of NCIS New Orleans, Matthew McConaughey – who delivered his famous love letter to New Orleans – John Goodman, and the Beasts of the Southern Wild director, Benh Zeitlin.

The gala is the Film Society’s largest fundraiser and directly supports the work of independent filmmakers with programs such as Cinema Classroom, the Create Louisiana filmmaker program, Emerging Voices mentorship initiative, as well as a Pitch Perfect student competition.
