|The Patois 2016 Film Festival is going to be at New Orleans, Louisiana. It will provide a forum for artistic expression regarding local and international issues and is dedicated to human rights. The event hosts a number of panels and workshops as well as screenings of both local films and films from around the world, many of which are premiered at the festival.
We are a festival with a mission. Founded by New Orleans artists and activists, PATOIS: The New Orleans International Human Rights Film Festival is dedicated to nurturing the city’s human rights community, supporting the work of local organizers and organizations involved in these struggles, and providing a forum for artistic expression of local and international issues.
Founded in 2004, PATOIS has premiered hundreds of powerful social justice oriented films from around the world while highlighting brilliant local filmmakers and the vital local grassroots organization doing work in the city.
In addition to the film festival every spring, PATOIS hosts a variety of community screenings, workshops and fundraising/outreach events leading up to the festival. Because Patois has always prioritized community accountability, we curate our festival in consultation with a range of New Orleans’ grassroots organizations and activists; from veterans of the civil rights movement, to high school students, to advocates, teachers, and organizers.
