Louisiana’s Film Incentives in 2023: Louisiana Economic Development’s Chris Stelly to Host Masterclass at Screenwriters Down South Meetup

Oct 26, 2023 | Louisiana Artists & Creators, Louisiana Filmmakers, Louisiana Productions

Screenwriters Down South meetup Chris Stelly

Louisiana filmmakers will have the chance to absorb wisdom on the nuances of Louisiana’s film incentives and eat great barbecue at the same time at the next joint meeting of the Screenwriters Down South and the Baton Rouge Film Meetup on November 15th.

Chris Stelly will discuss Louisiana’s film incentives in 2023 and how filmmakers, post-production professionals, and digital media creators can benefit from them. Chris is the Executive Group Director of Entertainment & Digital Media at Louisiana Economic Development, the Louisiana department responsible for implementing the tax incentives that sustain and cultivate the state’s film, post-production, and digital media industries year after year. That’s a lot of syllables to say: Chris is an expert on the economics of Louisiana filmmaking.

The event is hosted by local filmmaker Nick Savides and UpperLine Event Productions owner Joe Vuci. Nick Savides, a Baton Rouge filmmaker and an integral piece in organizing the meetups, extended an invitation:

On behalf of the Screenwriters Down South and the Baton Rouge Film Meetup, I’d like to cordially invite you to attend. I hope it will be an informative presentation, but also an opportunity to get to know the local creative community and a fruitful conversation about how we can continue to grow and thrive for years.

The meetup will be held at BRQ Seafood & Barbecue, a distinguished barbecue spot at 10423 Jefferson Hwy, Baton Rouge, on Wednesday, November 15th at 5:30 PM. For more details and to RSVP, you can visit this event link.
