New Film Festival Headed to Shreveport-Bossier Showcases Independent Films

There’s a new festival coming to town that runs in conjunction with DigiFest South. It’s called the Phenom Film Fest, being held September 6th through 9th in several locations in town. Co-producer, and former local, Wade McDougal says it kicks off on the 6th with opening night films at the East Bank Theater. Then, it moves over to the Courtyard Marriott at the Louisiana Boardwalk, and the Bossier Civic Center, where the Digital Arts Festival and Career Fair is going on.

McDougal says he and another local guy, Tony Fox, are bringing the festival back to their hometown to showcase independent films that otherwise may not be seen by the general public. He says Shreveport-Bossier has hosted a lot of major productions, which causes many to overlook these “smaller” ones.

The festival showcases films from all genres, from drama to comedy to documentary. A couple of the most interesting-sounding ones are a documentary called “As Goes Janesville,” which follows laid-off GM workers in Wisconsin…and “Underbelly Blues,” a comedy spoof of Quentin Tarantino movies — produced by the famous director’s own father, Tony!
