Even though Film-O-Rama started last week, you can still catch a number of films all this week. The festival ends on Thursday, May 19th.

New Orleans Film-O-RamaFor local film buffs, the New Orleans Film Sociey's Film-O-Rama is an event not to be missed. Showcasing films that did not show up in the local Cineplex, Film-O-Rama aims to enlighten the film crowd with some of the best in indie films, including documentaries and fictional stories.

2011's Film-O-Rama began on Friday, May 13th, and it continues to Thursday, May 19th. So if you haven't had the chance to see any of the rare big screen offerings, be sure to check them out.

The following films will show this week.

  • Certified Copy
  • Bill Cunningham New York
  • Potiche
  • Hobo with a Shotgun
  • The Princess of Montpensier
  • The Robber
  • Poetry
  • 13 Assassins
  • Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
  • The Robber
  • Heartbeats
  • Cave of Forgotten Dreams 3-D
  • Poetry
  • Meetk's Cutoff
  • Rubber

Several of the films look interesting and enlightening. I, however, am considering the not-so-educational film Rubber, a French horror / dark comedy movie about a destructive telepathic tire. It's good to know that Film-O-Rama offers something for everyone.
