Welcome to Shreveport-Bossier’s Film Trail. In the last few
years, we have experienced Hollywood right here in our own
backyard. You never know, when you stop by a café, just who
you are going to run into Kevin Costner, Katie Holmes,
Denzel Washington or Diane Keaton, just to name a few. Our
cities have become the filming destination for some of the
biggest names in the industry.
Please take this brochure and the self-directed tour of the Film
Trail for location shots in our community. The brochure features
locations where major movies were filmed by your favorite movie
stars. The signs will describe the locations. So whether you walk
the trail or drive to the various sites, you will enjoy the Film Trail.
By the way, if you see any large white trailers, or small yellow
signs around town you can be sure that a movie is being filmed
nearby. So, make sure you have your camera, because you never
know just who you may run into.
