How can I get in contact with an actor/director/producer about supporting my organization?

When famous actors, directors and producers are in town, they are working very long hours. This is not an excuse made by our office or those famous individuals, it is the truth. They are working 12-18 hours a day, 5-6 days a week. DO NOT just show up on set and try to meet an actor. If you are interested in formally requesting something, contact Film New Orleans by email at kgwilliams@nola.gov to go through the proper channels.

How can I get an interview with a specific actor/director/producer?

Actors, directors, and producers are EXTREMELY busy when shooting on location in New Orleans. If you are a member of the media seeking an interview, you may contact Film New Orleans by email at kgwilliams@nola.gov or call 504.658.4341 to go through the proper channels.
