Founders’ Circle VIP Club

The LAFP Founders Circle is an “All Access”, VIP pass to the “Coolest Film Festival on the Planet.” You will be wined and dined like the movie mogul you were always meant to be. Aside from that,  the goal of the Founders Circle is to help grant one lucky filmmakers a $3,000 budget to make a film for the 2017 Louisiana Film Prize. You will be able to vote for your favorite film separately from the other prizes.

What do I get?

The Founders Circle VIP Club privileges are:

  • VIP tickets to the festival
  • Early admission to festival seating
  • Admission into the VIP Lounge
  • Special listing in the program and a mention on pre-screening slides
  • Admission into Award Announcement brunch (must RSVP upon purchase of membership)
  • One vote towards a film you feel best deserves a Founders Circle award
  • The honor of supporting the independent film community in their future endeavors

What do the winning filmmakers get?

The winning filmmaker will be awarded a $3000 Founder’s Circle grant. The grant can be used to shoot a film for next year’s Louisiana Film Prize. Delivery of the grant money will be contingent on the filmmaker turning in receipts for production funds that are spent locally (in the qualifying filming area). Any spending out of the area does not qualify.
