"I think we’re in real trouble. I don’t know how this started or why, but I know it’s here and we’d be crazy to ignore it… The bird war, the bird attack, plague - call it what you like. They’re amassing out there someplace and they’ll be back. You can count on it" —Alfred Hitchcock, The Birds

"Times are not good here, The city is crumbling into ashes. It has been buried under a lava flood of taxes and frauds and maladministrations so that it has become only a study for archaeologists. Its condition is so bad that when I write about it, as I intend to do soon, nobody will believe I am telling the truth. But it is better to be here in sackcloth and ashes than to own the whole state of Ohio."
Lafcadio Hearn, New Orleans 1879

The 25th annual New Orleans Film Festival kicks off this week. Matt Brennan has a preview of events for the silver anniversary. New Orleans Film Society director Jolene Pinder, left, says:

"We’ve put extra resources into bringing these people that are gatekeepers in a sense, or just industry heavyweights, who are committed to increasing the diversity of voices in the filmmaking community. And that kind of comes out of our own experience … feeling like local independent filmmakers need more access to industry resources and they need to make those connections."
