#CreateLouisiana announced Thursday the 2020/2021 French Culture Film Grant. The $25,000 cash grant supports one Louisiana filmmaking team to create a new film (a short scripted film or feature-length documentary) featuring French culture and talent.

The #CreateLouisiana French Culture Film Grant champions indigenous talent and celebrates the diverse culture of Louisiana. The grant is an industry-building program that recognizes the creative community and the state's deep connection to French and Francophone culture. This funding opportunity aids in those creative endeavors by offering the necessary resources for the next generation to tell stories of the past, current and future traditions.
