PONTCHARTRAIN FILM FESTIVAL: FALL FILM TOUR
The Pontchartrain Film Festival is screening a curated selection of four award-winning documentary films with community partners on a tour that brings documentary films to Mandeville, Covington and Abita Springs for special screenings in the months leading up to festival weekend. The documentaries are made by Louisiana filmmakers, or are on subjects of interest to Louisiana residents. Now in its second year, the tour is an opportunity to bring documentary films and filmmakers into settings for interaction with their audiences, and for discussions about the films' subject and the filmmaking process.
