MISSION & OBJECTIVE

The Lake Charles Film & Music Festival is an annual event founded to bring the very best of independent film and video to Calcasieu Parish (in Southwest Louisiana.) It was also founded to spotlight and award the achievements of the filmmakers behind these awesome films.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

The festival features three days of independent film screenings, seminars & workshops on filmmaking, acting, and screenwriting, celebrity appearances, parties, cajun food, live music, and much more!
We also have a unique award trophy called the "Scallywag" award. Does your film have what it takes to bring home a Scallywag?
