Friday, October 2

On Friday morning at 9am, the ticket/pass exchange will re-open at Tipitina’s Music Co-Op (700 Texas Street) and films begin Friday morning at 10am. From that point forward, films will screen nonstop at the five venues around downtown Shreveport and Bossier City. You may pick any screening you’d like to attend, but remember, theaters fill up fast – so remember to show up early and be ready to wait (and have some unscheduled fun in the process). You may vote only after you have seen all 20 films. The 20 films are separated into slates of 10 films each which are called “Orange” and “Teal.” Find out which films are on which slates by visiting the films page.
