Louisiana Student Film Festival
 

LFEA Members:
 
I hope all of you had a safe and sound Thanksgiving and are all holding up under this new normal. A glimpse of hope for all of us will be the eventual distribution of one of the many vaccines for COVID-19, which should make our outlook for 2021 an even brighter one than we are already expecting.
 
As you know, LFEA launched the Louisiana Student Film Festival this year.  We received over 70 entries across the state from a wide range of Louisiana high schools. The goal of this annual festival is to inspire the next generation of filmmakers, which we are helping to mentor and stay right here at home. The individual winners were announced this summer in a virtual awards ceremony in partnership with WYES-TV. 
 
The award show and the winning students’ films will be broadcast on WYES and live-streamed on WYES.org.  There are several chances to watch and celebrate our young Louisiana filmmakers!
 
Broadcast times on WYES 12.1
Wednesday, December 2 at 5pm
Sunday, December 13 at 4pm.
 
Streaming on WYES.org/education/pbs-kids-247
Monday, December 7th at 7pm
 
Please check one of the shows out if you can, and please re-share our social media posts.


 
Our annual meeting this year will be virtual with a date to be announced shortly.  In addition, we will review 2020 as a whole and let you know what we are working on ahead of the 2021 legislative session when our industry is likely to be under review again. You can register for this by emailing info@lfea.org.
 
I hope that you and your families have a safe holiday season and thank you for your continued support of our industry. Hope to see you in a few weeks virtually!
