Are you the Prize?

It's so crazy to think that Prize Fest will be turning nine this year. It seems like just yesterday we were all taking in 20 short films for the first ever Louisiana Film Prize. A lot has changed since that first year. For starters, the event is massive and draw quite the crowd to the streets of downtown Shreveport. There has also been several other "prizes" that have been added like Music Prize, Food Prize, Fashion Prize and more. These collectively makeup what is now known as Prize Fest.

That being said, it's about time we got this party started.

The film portion of Louisiana Film Prize will be kicking off on Friday, January 17 at Robinson Film Center. The party starts at 6 p.m. with a social hour. This is a great time for filmmakers to meet and hopefully connect on a future project, it's also a great time to mingle with the filmmakers and catch the Prize. Then at 7 p.m. the official kickoff will begin.

And it wouldn't be the Prize without an official after party. It starts at 8 p.m., but the location is yet to be determined. Just follow the crowd after the kickoff festivities.
