The 1st Annual DTC (DownTown Covington) Film Festival
DTC seeks to provide a warm and welcoming environment for filmmakers to screen their work and interact with the audience in one of Louisiana's most beautiful hotels, with a goal of spotlighting unique stories and award filmmakers for their cinematic achievements.
All films will screen at the luxurious Southern Hotel in the heart of Downtown Covington, located just 45 minutes north of New Orleans. The Southern Hotel’s vaunted history of hospitality began in 1907 as a physical and spiritual retreat where visitors could re-energize amidst the cool breeze, piney woods and mineral springs. Today visitors can enjoy downtown Covington's art galleries, boutiques, award winning restaurants, Farmer's Market and parks, as well as live music and nightlife all within walking distance of the hotel.
The festival will screen shorts and features, including narratives, documentaries, and student films. There will be panel discussions as well as opportunities for filmmakers to interact with judges and the audience at several social events. The selection process will be conducted by a panel of judges not associated with the hotel.
Awards will be given for:
- Best Feature Film
- Best Short Film
- Best Documentary Film
- Best Short Documentary Film
- Best Student Film
