ABOUT THE FESTIVAL: The Louisiana International Film Festival (LIFF) celebrates the film industry and fosters connections between Louisiana talent and veteran filmmakers. The inaugural festival in 2013 featured more than 60 films, including several Louisiana and world premiers, as well as the Academy Award-winning documentary “20 Feet From Stardom” with Director Morgan Neville and Merry Clayton in attendance. LIFF is a non-profit organization dedicated to the development of Louisiana’s film, digital media and innovation talent and representation of that talent to the world via the annual Louisiana International Film Festival (LIFF), Louisiana FilmSociety and Mentorship Program. LIFF aims to provide a forum where talent may obtain skills and relationships that enable them to play a central role in the industry and for the community to be involved in the movement.
