New Orleans, Louisiana Oct 16-21, 2018

Magic by land and by screen!

Oct 16-21, 2018 

Talk Cinema, under the direction of Harlan Jacobson, is now in our 29th year offering hosted visits to film festivals around the US and the world.  For the first time, Talk Cinema Travelers are offered places in our upcoming visit to the New Orleans Film Festival. Hosted travel to film festivals is the best way we’ve found for those of you who’ve asked us to get you entrée to new films. This trip includes accommodations close to the principle fest venues, a chance to experience a discovery festival as an industry insider – up close and personal with new filmmakers and established ones showcasing their newest ones.
