It's Official: LA Film Prize winners at PFF.5
It's official! The Top 5 Louisiana Film Prize winners that will screen at PFF.5 at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5 include the $50,000 winner THE MAN FROM MARS.
The Top Five are THE MAN FROM MARS, MEMOIR, NATIVE, THE STAND and YA ALBI (My Heart).
Each year the Pontchartrain Film Festival is the first opportunity to see the winning films from the Louisiana Film Prize. The competition, held in Shreveport, offers a $50,000 cash prize, distribution deals and Founders Circle awards. More than 4,000 attended this year's festival in Shreveport and members of the Krewe of PFF.5 were there to meet with the filmmakers and vote for the prize.
We also heard THE MAN FROM MARS director, Jonnie Stapleton, discuss his winning film about a cynical podcast host hellbent on making fools of small town celebrities, until he meets his match: A charming woman who has her entire community believeing she's the second coming of Christ.
