Goodness, both events are great festivals for Shreveport and northwest Louisiana.
The Revel is a long standing institution. The variety of events and artisans increase every year along with the attendance.
The film fest is fast becoming one–along with the ever expanding ancillary events. Competitions in music, food, and fashion were part of the prize fest.
But do these two great events need to overlap? Seriously....
How much does the Revel sacrifice to the fest events–and vice versa?
And how bout the event goers who often choose to go only to the downtown fest or festival plaza?
