Become a Pontchartrain Film Festival sponsor
The PONTCHARTRAIN FILM FESTIVAL reaches a 5 year milestone in 2016. The festival was begun in 2011 in Slidell, by the nonprofit Olde Towne Arts Center. It moved in 2015 to Mandeville.
The festival will reach new audience this year with two events for youth and their families - the Freaky Fun Halloween Animation Workshop Oct. 29 and two screenings of four animated short films from the Academy Award winning Moonbot Studios.
Filmmakers and film fans will enjoy an afternoon and evening screenings of Louisiana made feature and short films and winners of the Louisiana Film Prize
The public can meet filmmakers and people working in the industry, and find out what inspires and challenges them in tmaking films.
The City of Mandeville will host the 5th Annual Pontchartrain Film Festival as part of a Cooperative Endeavor to provide a community event that encourages emerging filmmakers, creates interaction with the regional film economy and provides educational opportunities.
Presented by OTAC's Digital Arts Program, the Pontchartrain Film Festival has become an annual cultural arts event on the north shore.
“The Pontchartrain Film Festival will allow professional and emerging filmmakers to interact with their audience in an intimate setting,” OTAC Director Charlotte Collins said. “We are grateful for the opportunity to put the spotlight on the area’s growing film industry."
With sponsorship and support, the festival can expand its opportunities for hands-on workshops, dialogues and training with filmmakers and year-round film series.
