New Orleans’ French Film Festival is back! Here’s what you need to know

Last Sunday marked the 58th anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery March that ended in what we know today as Bloody Sunday. But just six weeks ago, a devastating tornado ravaged the city and recovery efforts are still underway. WBHM’s Cody Short traveled to the community to find out more about what this year’s annual Bridge Crossing Jubilee means to residents.

The internationally renowned contemporary dance company, MOMIX, is heading to the Crescent City as the New Orleans Ballet Association presents their latest work, ALICE! Artistic director Moses Pendleton tells us how this performance was inspired by Lewis Carroll’s classic, Alice in Wonderland.

The 26th Annual New Orleans French Film Festival kicks off this week. It’s one of the longest running foreign language festivals in the country with both in-person screenings and a virtual cinema. Clint Bowie, Artistic Director of the New Orleans Film Society, joins us with the details.
