The Pontchartrain Film Festival presents a fall film tour in advance of the sixth annual festival in November 2017, bringing award-winning documentary films to Madisonville, Abita Springs, Covington and Mandeville for special screenings.
The second film on the tour is the north shore premier of “Forgotten Bayou,” a feature length documentary about the Bayou Corne sink hole, by director Victoria Greene, at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 17, Abita Town Hall, 22161 Level St.
The PFF Film Tour is an opportunity to bring documentary films and filmmakers into settings where there can be interaction with their audience and discussions about the films' subject, and the filmmaking process.
A project of the nonprofit Olde Town Arts Center, the Pontchartrain Film Festival provides opportunities to see some of the best in Louisiana made animated, narrative, documentary and experimental films. The public is invited to meet filmmakers and people working in the industry while enjoying popcorn and movies for two days on the north shore.
The sixth annual Pontchartrain Film Festival takes place Friday, Nov. 3 and Saturday, Nov. 4, 2017 at the Mandeville Trailhead Depot, 675 Lafitte St. Tickets available in advance at https://squareup.com/market/pontchartrain-film-festival and at the door as space is available.
