As part of the New Orleans Film Festival , 2017, Cinema Reset is presenting a video projection of the avant-garde film, HIGHVIEW, against the historic Scottish Rite Temple. Located across the street from New Orleans Film Fest headquarters at Ace Hotel, Free and open to the public.
Now in its 28th year, the New Orleans Film Festival, October 11-19, 2017, has grown into an internationally respected annual event that attracts 20-25k people, 400+ filmmakers, and 240 films. It is one of the few film festivals that is Oscar-qualifying in all three Academy-accredited categories: Narrative Short, Documentary Short, and Animated Short—and it’s been recognized by MovieMaker Magazine as one of the “Top 50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee” every year since 2012 (one of only two festivals to receive that recognition for six straight years).
Since 2012 Cinema Reset has worked to bring exciting new media works to New Orleans, facilitate community media arts workshops, and champion diverse creative voices on the front lines of emerging art and storytelling forms. Cinema Reset began as a single exhibition, and since then we have grown into an organization that supports interdisciplinary and hybrid media. As curators, we prioritize sharing works that don't quite fit within traditional gallery or film festival settings. We support and exhibit dynamic transmedia storytelling, experimental media performance, immersive virtual reality projects, multimedia installations, video art, and more. We also promote the revitalization of celluloid-film processes, and host screenings of genre-defying films and animations.
