LOUISIANA (press release) – The recipient of the 2021 #CreateLouisiana French Culture Film Grant, Film Quest, premiered at the New Orleans French Film Festival on Saturday, March 12. The narrative short film will also broadcast on TV5MONDE USA on Thursday, March 17, 9:50 p.m. ET.
The #CreateLouisiana French Culture Film Grant is a unique opportunity for Louisiana filmmakers and is designed to support a thoughtful new film that showcases Francophone culture and talent. From three finalists, the French Culture Film Grant committee selected Film Quest, a narrative short film, made entirely in French, that tells the story of a superhero-obsessed son who tries to win a film festival, in a last ditch effort to save his dad from certain death. Film Quest was written and directed by Skyler Stroup and produced by Samuel Craft and Nous Foundation, Inc/ Scott Tilton.
The 2021 #CreateLouisiana French Culture Film Grant was supported by TV5MONDE USA, Cox Communications, Deep South Studios, and the Council for the Development of French in Louisiana (CODOFIL). The funding opportunity aims to champion indigenous filmmaking talent and celebrate the diverse culture of Louisiana.
