    We were not able to attend but The Shreveport Urban Film Festival made us feel like we were there. Their marketing was top notch and innovative and they were kind enough to share footage of our films viewing. I hope to be involved with this festival again in the future.

    Shreveport Urban Film Festival did An awesome job with social media in terms of marketing this festival, they really promoted all of the films involved. I loved their very creative video trailer for the festival, with an original soundtrack that described all of the films involved!
    Unfortunately, I was unable to go, but from their sold out shows and photo posts it looked like they had a great turn out! Kudos to Shreveport Urban Film Festival!
