In the last decade, Louisiana has nurtured a blossoming film industry. Cost-effective skilled workforce, new infrastructure, diverse locations, and a long-term commitment to the country’s most aggressive film and entertainment tax incentives have seen the number of Louisiana productions skyrocket in the last 10 years. In 2013, Louisiana was the top location for major motion picture film production in the world and ranked 3rd for overall productions. Nearly 15,000 jobs are supported by Louisiana’s film industry, and that number is constantly growing. Since 2006, over 300 films have been shot in Louisiana by major film studios such as Warner Bros, Paramount, Universal, Sony and 20th Century Fox. Louisiana has been host to nearly every genre of filmmaking and television production. These include action, comedy, drama, horror and fantasy. Some of these films, such as The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Beasts of the Southern Wild, and Dallas Buyers Club, among others, are Oscar winners.
