What We Fund

Free Screenings at the New Orleans Film Festival

NOFF Free Screenings

The New Orleans Film Society discovers, cultivates, and amplifies diverse voices of filmmakers who tell the stories of our time. NOFS produces the Academy-accredited New Orleans Film Festival annually and to share transformative cinematic experiences with audiences. Paste Magazine praised the festival for offering “a platform to voices that still fight to be heard.”


As part of our commitment to expanding access to the arts, The Helis Foundation supports an array of free screenings and events throughout the New Orleans Film Festival engaging new attendees at the Festival.


The Helis Foundation helps provide the New Orleans Film Festival:


  • 12-15 free film screenings

  • One full day of free film screenings

  • Distribute 250 additional free tickets to screenings to diverse non-profit community partners
