Phenom Film Fest

Festival
Festival presentation: 

The Phenom Film Fest is being held in the Shreveport-Bossier City, Louisiana area. No stranger to filmmaking, the region has experienced a major boom in recent years, with numerous studios calling the region home. Since Louisiana offers one of the top tax incentive programs for filmmaking nationwide, it's no wonder it's been referred to as "Hollywood South."

While major film studios have used the locale to serve as the backdrop for numerous cities and countries worldwide, the Phenom Film Fest serves to draw interest, support and attention to independent filmmaking locally and internationally. The festival will show roughly 40-60 features and shorts while showcasing fun, interactive and innovative talk panels.
