New Orleans Film Society Gala
Gala 8pm – 11pm
The annual New Orleans Film Society Patron Party + Gala – held at the Magnolia Mansion and Altamura on March 18, 2017 – will sure to be another red carpet-worthy evening! The event celebrates cinema like never before – craft cocktails, gourmet fare, live music, 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, in-particularly the Louisiana film industry.

The 2017 will be announced soon!
