NOVAC, in partnership with the Alliance for Louisiana Filmmakers, will host a listening session Wednesday, wanting input from local filmmakers on how local-use tax incentive money can best serve Louisiana’s independent film and digital media community, WAFB-TV reports.
In 2017, the Louisiana Legislature passed a law to improve the landscape for Louisiana’s independent filmmakers and content creators with the establishment of the Louisiana Entertainment Development Fund, which could equal around $2.6 million annually, according to information provided by ALF. Those funds will be fully realized in 2019.
In addition to the Baton Rouge listening session, ALF will be hosting other sessions around the state. The Baton Rouge event is Wednesday, from 6-8 p.m., at The Parlor on St. Joseph Street. Read the full story.
