Congratulations to the Governor Elect!
The Louisiana Film Entertainment Association congratulates Rep. John Bel Edwards on his victory in the Nov. 21 runoff. We look forward to working with the governor-elect, who is already on the record as being “committed to maintaining a strong film industry in Louisiana for the many people who depend on this industry for their livelihoods” and pledging to help ensure its stability.
LFEA has had multiple meetings with Gov.-elect Edwards. He and his staff reassured us that they are aware of the issues facing the film industry and the need for timely resolutions. Both sides will be in communication as the transition team is assembled, and LFEA will relay developments to our members as soon as they become available.
We look forward to many new productions on the horizon and continuing to make Louisiana the best place to film.
Robert Vosbein Elected President of the Louisiana Film and Entertainment Association
NEW ORLEANS— Robert A. Vosbein, founder and CEO of Silver Screen Group, was elected President and will preside over the newly formed Executive Committee of the Louisiana Film and Entertainment Association (LFEA). A former attorney with Adams & Reese LLP for over 40 years, Robert has extensive experience in commercial litigation and has focused his practice over the past 10 years in the area of the Louisiana film incentive program. This change in leadership has come about as LFEA reorganizes in order to strengthen its reach and effectiveness. Under the new reorganization plan, President Vosbein and the newly elected Executive Committee will handle the day-to-day operations of LFEA. LFEA is heavily involved in legislative efforts to ensure the long-term success of the industry in Louisiana as well as efforts to attract more productions to the State. It is committed to building and protecting jobs in the film industry. “LFEA’s mission is to grow the film and entertainment industry in the state of Louisiana, to protect the jobs that have been created over the past 12 years, and to ensure the state makes a long-term commitment to the industry. We will be working diligently with the next Governor, the newly elected Legislature, and regulatory officials to ensure that our program is strong and that it continues to create quality jobs for the people of Louisiana” said Vosbein. “It is critical that our policymakers in Baton Rouge work to maintain a stable environment for film production in the state.” LFEA is a statewide trade and professional association representing the thousands of its members depending on the film and entertainment industry in the State of Louisiana. Its purpose is to build a long-term, stable environment for film, television, and digital media production in the state.
