8/6/2015 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Shreveport, LA – August 6, 2015
The week-long festival will have an opening weekend of LGBT-themed films with special guest appearances at our reception and throughout the weekend. The following week we’ll repeat our films, have an evening of short films, and several panel discussions. Our special guests and their scheduled appearances will be announced soon!
A new feature of our film festival this year will be the opportunity for filmmakers and film students in our community to join professional filmmakers to view screenings and discuss the filmmaking process. PACE will be reaching out to students at local colleges and universities in addition to participants in the Louisiana Film Prize competition. PACE is grateful to the Beaird Foundation and the Community Foundation for their support of this new exciting addition to our festival.
