The emerging Hollywood South rolls out the red carpet at Perkins Rowe over the course of four days thanks to the Louisiana International Film Festival.

Over fifty films will be screened, including the Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or winner and refugee thriller Dheepan, an intriguing look at a silver screen star by the likes of Sigourney Weaver and recent Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander in the documentary Ingrid Bergman In Her Own Words, and the latest from thought-provoking documentary director Werner Herzog with Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World examining the future impact of digital culture. All films are screened at Cinemark Perkins Rowe, with accompanying galas, receptions, after parties, live music, workshops, guest speakers, and industry networking. Three varieties of passes are available that afford guests unlimited film screenings, plus many other perks: VIP Passes ($150), All Access Passes ($125), and Student Passes ($50). $10 per film otherwise, available from the Cinemark Perkins Rowe box office. lifilmfest.org.
