Shreveport: Where's that Exactly?

7:11 PM

Maybe you saw our casting notice, noted that we are shooting our film in Shreveport and are  wondering, exactly where is Shreveport, and how would I get there?


Shreveport is the third largest city in Louisiana.  And, while most people associate Louisiana with New Orleans or Baton Rouge, Shreveport is actually... no where near there.  Rather, Shreveport is in the North Western corner of the state just miles from the Texas and Arkansas borders.




Shreveport is actually closer to Dallas than either Baton Rouge or New Orleans.  It's 188 miles to Dallas, 240 to Houston,  252 to Baton Rouge and 327 to New Orleans.

We will be shooting in both Shreveport and Bossier City, Shreveport's sister city just across the Red River.  In fact, more often than not the area is referred to as "Shreveport/Bossier."

The Shreveport/Bossier metroplex is known for its river front casinos and is a popular weekend and vacation destination for many in Louisiana and neighboring states.  Since 2012, the area has also become increasingly well known for the Louisiana Film Prize,


Here are some links to help acquaint you with the area.
