Lila French's Short Selected for 2013 New Orleans Film Festival

BIRDBATH has been selected to screen at the
2013 New Orleans Film Festival!

:) :) :) :) :)



The festival will take place October 10-17th, 2013 (screening schedule TBA).




I'm so excited to be able to screen my debut film in my awesome home town!!! Not only do I have a ton of family and friends there, but also many of those who supported the film through Kickstarter are there! (Thank you again, Kickstarter supporters, for taking a chance on me and this project. Now I have (some) credibility!)

Also, the gritty/artsy style of the film and the story of a struggling artist trying to make it in the city are perfectly suited to New Orleans. Not to mention the jazz score.. AND the version of the film to be screened is the FULL film with the WORLD'S GREATEST CLOSING CREDITS SONG (an original arrangement of a jazz standard tailored for the film and beautifully played by live musicians)!

I can't wait! If you ever wanted to visit New Orleans... might I suggest October 10-17, 2013... :)

You can join me for the world's most fun thing, which is riding the train through City Park and waving to everyone in the park and having them wave back. (Try it, you'll see.)

See y'all in NOLA in Octobah,
Lila :D
