September 9, 2015 (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). An attorney with Adams and Reese for over 40 years and currently Of Counsel, 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.
