Louisiana Film Summit coming Aug. 1

If you're into the local film industry -- you're reading this blog so you know you are -- get thee to the Shreveport Convention Center on Aug. 1. There will be a Louisiana Film Summit, where you'll have a chance to:
  • meet and hear from local insiders
  • listen to panels
  • network, network, network
  • hear from a state and national experts
  • and get up to speed on The Shreve on the state's film industry.
They're expected about 300 folks to show, so get your business cards ready, local vendors.

Tax credits are a big issue right now because so many states are upping their incentives -- Michigan, hello! -- so that's bound to be a big, big topic of discussion.

Cost is $50 in advance. Get your ticket here.
