Louisiana Film Prize 2014 Celebrity Judges Announced


Every year, we have the pleasure of playing host to 20 amazing films who are competing for a gigantic $50,000 cash prize, festival distribution, and more. The way these winnings are calculated is one of the things that makes Louisiana Film Prize unique in the festival community. The decision is made by collecting votes from the audience,  who account for 50% of the final vote, and a panel of celebrity judges from the film and arts community around the country who constitute the other 50%.

We are excited to announce this year’s crop of judges which include producers, directors, writers, film critics, and more. For the detailed list of judges and their curriculum vitae, please visit: http://lafilmprize.com/judges
