New Orleans Film Society

This week on Inside the Arts, the Prytania Theatre is ground zero for the 22nd New Orleans French Film Festival. We get a sneak peek at French language films from around the globe with Fallon Young, executive director of the New Orleans Film Society.

Then, we take a long and winding road to a Julia Street art gallery.  Boyd|Satellite is closing its doors with a final exhibit, Number Nine Dream, paying  homage to former Beatle, John Lennon.  Co-owners Ginette Bone and Blake Boyd will join us.

It’s summertime, the kids are out of school, and Hollywood is, once again, following the money.

“Right now you can literally go see Fast and Furious 6 at practically any theater in the city, said John Desplas, artistic director for the New Orleans Film Society, “and it’s starting in 20 minutes on one of the 20 screens.”
