Cinematic Culture In August: Henry Griffin On New Orleans' Film Scene

Jul 31, 2014

Head into the cool, dark spaces so nice in the summertime: movie theaters. Henry Griffin, our regular guest, joins Eve Troeh in the WWNO studios to give a few cinematic happenings for the month of August.

Satchmo Summer Fest includes screenings of Louis Armstrong film and TV clips, called "Cinematic Satch," playing August 1-3 at the US Mint. More on that and the full festival schedule right here.

Oui, oui. The Film Society of New Orleans hosts its annual French Film Festival August 1-7 at the Prytania Theater, Uptown.

For those looking to get experience working in film, in that quintessential entry level film set job as a production assistant, NOVAC and the City of New Orleans host a P.A. Boot Camp at Ashe Cultural Center, August 23-24.

Henry Griffin is Artist in Residence at the University of New Orleans Department of Film, Theater and Communications Arts. He joins us on WWNO each month to talk film, film events, and all things cinematic in and around New Orleans.
