Why Film in Jeff Davis Parish?


Jeff Davis Parish includes the city of Jennings, and the towns of Lake Arthur, Welsh, Elton, and the villages of Fenton, Lacassine and Roanoke.

Located in Southwest Louisiana right along Interstate 10, you'll find brick sidewalks, gas street lamps, quaint Main Street, Victorian architecture, churches, museums, rice fields, rice mills, crawfish, ponds, open prairies, oil refining facilities, ship building facilities, lakes, bayous, swamps, wildlife refuges, alligators, beaches, and the Coushatta Indian Reservation.

Whether you are looking to film a whimsical romance, or an action packed crime drama, we have something for you.

What you won't find are fees, permits, hassles or mountains!

Film Comission's Role

Jeff Davis Parish Film Commission offers 24-hour availability when you are shooting on location and stand ready to assist your production. We are your Governmental Liaison, maintaining effective working contacts with local government and clearing the path for any services you may require.

We also offer scouting assistance, giving recommendations on accommodations, transportation, crew, etc. and assistance with itinerary planning.

Location Search

Let us know your requirements, ideally with a script, but an email or phone description will do. We maintain an extensive, up to date photo library on sites within our parish. If we have the location you are wanting but no pictures, no problem, we'll go out and shoot specifically for you.

When you are ready to come take a look, we can help by coordinating your physical scout to the areas/photographs that sparked your interest.
