Shreveport Times: Louisiana Film Prize moved back a week

Out of respect for the Jewish holiday Yom Kippur, the Louisiana Film Prize has moved the date of its annual Film Prize Festival Weekend to Oct. 10-12, festival director Gregory Kallenberg said. The festival was initially slated for Oct. 3-5.

Kallenberg said the transition was surprisingly seamless and events will occur at same times originally slated but just moved back a week.

Started in 2012, the annual festival attracts filmmakers from across the country to produce short films in Shreveport-Bossier in the hopes of winning a $50,000 grand prize. The deadline for submissions recently passed with more than 100 entries. The Film Prize will announce the Top 20 films on August 12.
