The Create Louisiana Filmmakers Grant is an industry-building program designed to recognize and celebrate the creative industries in Louisiana, including all of the burgeoning, indigenous filmmakers that contribute to Louisiana’s vibrant creative economy. Create Louisiana is a partnership between the LEH, Deep South Studios and the New Orleans Film Society.
In 2015 Create Louisiana awarded a $50,000 grant to “Plaquemines,” a feature short by director Nailah Jefferson and producer Jon Wood. The film premiered at the 2016 New Orleans Film Festival.
In 2016 Create Louisiana announced a new partnership with TV5Monde to fund a film exploring Louisiana’s French culture. Click here to learn more about this grant opportunity. The deadline is March 20, 2017.
