Louisiana is a state so rich in cultural heritage, so replete with distinguished circumstance, we’re able to use #OnlyLouisiana as our official tourism hashtag.
Sure, we claim the tallest capitol building (450 feet!) and the longest continuous bridge over water (Lake Pontchartrain Causeway - almost 24 miles long) and Louisiana is known for our outstanding food, our joie de vivre, our powerful musical culture and our resilience. Of course we boast bayous that leave you breathless and lay claim to the most enchanting topography and terrain.
Louisiana has more American Indian tribes than any other Southern state. We have no official language because our state constitution specifically protects “the right of the people to preserve, foster and promote their respective historic, linguistic and cultural origins.” Louisiana boasts the Army’s first African American officers and the very first railroad spike ever driven into the ground by a woman. It may be our strong respect for the melting pot which is our great state that is the most impressive singular thing about Louisiana.
We’re asking filmmakers to show us in 90 seconds or less the kind of magic #OnlyLouisiana holds.
Three submissions allowed per filmmaker.
