Film Favorites Edition

New Orleans Bracket Bash is back, and this time it's a showdown between the best of the silver screen. Our next tournament will pit fan favorites against some overlooked movies from Louisiana’s more than 100 years of filmography. At the end of the four-round contest, a winning movie will be crowned, and that film will go on to be the subject of a #NolaMovieNight group re-watch in August 2020. 

Nominations are now closed. The bracket will be released at 5 p.m. on Friday, June 5, and the tournament will begin at 7 p.m. on Sunday, June 7.
