  1. Hi Katy, thank you for including the Pontchartrain Film Festival on your site. I wanted to let you know that the Friday night showing will now be held outdoors in the Mandeville Trailhead Amphitheater and is Free. We will be showing “Dancing in the Water” about one man’s swim across Lake Pontchartrain. Saturday is in the depot and tickets are $5 as you have listed. Thanks again!
