Director / actor / writer Chris Alan Evans ("Sad Man's Club") and co-directors Colby Doler and Taylor Bracewell ("War Paint") talk with 101.67 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the upcoming PrizeFest, which will culminate with the awarding of the $50,000 Louisiana Film Prize.
Evans tells KEEL listeners that the annual event will feature short twenty films selected as finalists for this year's prize, which, once again, will award $50,000 to the winner.
This year's Film Prize has been expanded by originator Gregory Kallenberg to Prize Fest 2018. From the website prizefest.org:
Prize Fest is an unparalleled street festival experience in Shreveport and Bossier City featuring film, music, food, and community. It’s a festival where you can cut loose and enjoy unique experiences with friends old and new. Since its inaugural year in 2012, Prize Fest has become a local must-do event and has received national recognition for the work of participating artists and the festival itself. Prize Fest occupies many venues and streets throughout downtown Shreveport’s growing West Edge Arts District, which is home to a growing number of organizations and locally-owned businesses, as well as Bossier City’s newly-renovated East Bank District.
