In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Film Prize 2020: Online in your home!

Film Prize is back with 20 great short films and you are the judge!

It’s the centerpiece of Prize Fest every October. Louisiana Film Prize 2020 shows 20 short films and one film wins $25,000 and you get to vote for the winner. From October 2-11, you can view all of the films after purchasing a pass. Plus get even more access with more streaming content. What’s neat about this year is that you can watch the short films at your leisure during the run on the festival and in the comfort of your home because it’s all online.

20 Short Films – 1 Prize

Filmmakers spent the past several months creating their masterpieces shot all over Louisiana. The Coronavirus led to innovative ways of shooting and producing the films. Many submitted films and twenty made it to Film Prize 2020. These films range from comedy to horror and from romance to heart breaking drama. See the list of films here. If you buy a pass and watch all 20 films, you can then vote. Film industry professionals will also be watching and their votes count for 50% of the total. The people’s votes count for the other 50%. See the winner announced on Tuesday, October 13 at 7:00 pm online along with the other Prize Fest winners.
