      FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

      FOBURG FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES THE FIRST YEAR OF FOBURG FILM FESTIVAL*

      NEW ORLEANS, LA – January 1, 2012 – foburg Festival announces
      the implementation of its first film festival as an addition to the 3rd
      year of foburg's music festival.

      foburg is a 3-day alternative music and film festival on March 9-11,
      2012 in 15 venues on and around Frenchmen Street in the greater Marigny
      neighborhood of New Orleans. foburg features rock, indie rock, and
      alternative artists from the greater Gulf South and national touring
      artists on their way to SXSW in Austin TX, which is the following week.
      foburg also helps revitalize a once-thriving, historic Frenchmen Street
      by drawing fans of a less "traditional" genres of music to its
      venues. Foburg 2011 featured 15 venues, 125 bands, and crowds
      approaching 10,000 people.

      foburg.film concentrates on the film portion of foburg, providing a
      lineup of films that will encompass music, an independent spirit, and
      visual flair. foburg.film festival hopes to be what any major film fest
      is when they begin, allowing indie filmmakers to expose their films to a
      market that caters to independent thinking.

      The Fest will consist of a three day lineup, comparable to the music
      fest. The first day will feature the first 2 hour round of short films,
      produced from around the world, as well as right here in New Orleans.
      The second day will consist of the screening of our 24 hour music video
      festival, which will pair music bands and filmmakers together to make a
      music video in 24 hours to compete for a top prize. The last day will
      consist of the second short film block, and an outdoor screening of a
      film on Frenchmen Street.

      Submissions are now open until February 13th, 2012 (Visit foburg.film on
      Facebook for submission inquiries). For further information for
