The University of New Orleans (UNO) has finalized its selection of three UNO students and 10 alumni films for the 27th annual New Orleans Film Festival.
The New Orleans Film Society will show the films at various venues in
New Orleans Oct. 12-22.
This year's record-breaking number of submissions made the
selection especially competitive. UNO undergraduate Jon Wood's
"Plaquemines" -- as well as graduate students Max Fisk's "Heart
Break-In" and Paul Punzo's "Comedy Rising" -- were selected for the
festival. Wood and alumni Aaron Rushin were producers of the feature film,
"A Quiet Storm." Rushin is on the staff of UNO's Department of Film
Also selected for the festival were alumni R. Todd Campbell, who directed a music video, "This Idea of Us," and a documentary
short, "Hollis Treasures," while Eric Gremillion directed an animated short called “The Tale of Elisha Bowman."
Short narrative films
were directed or co-directed by Alex Aaron, Alaina Boyett, Jason Buch, Paul
Catalanotto, Aaron Davis and Trenton Mynatt. A second feature film,
"People," was directed by Shane McGooey.
The UNO Department of Film and Theatre has the only
accredited film and theater program in New Orleans. It is a member of the National Association
of Schools of Theatre (NAST).
