Ahead of the 25th anniversary of the New Orleans Film Festival, which takes place Oct. 16-Oct. 23, actor John Goodman joined officials with the New Orleans Film Society to urge support for the festival and for the Greater New Orleans Foundation’s GiveNOLA Day.

Tuesday is GiveNOLA Day, a 24-hour online donation period designed to encourage support for more than 300 nonprofit organizations in the New Orleans region, including the New Orleans Film Society, which presents the film festival.
