About FBT Film & Entertainment
FBT Film & Entertainment is owned by FBT Advisors, Inc., an affiliate of First Bank and Trust and a subsidiary of First Trust Corporation since 2001. As a bank affiliate we offer a complete choice of banking relationship products. In addition we offer a range of broker services including investments, insurance, business advisory, and venture capital. The unique ability to integrate these services for our film industry clients gives us an unmatched edge over any competitor.
We started with the goal of increasing local community involvement with the film industry and the development of our industry has been nothing short of remarkable. We are actively working to further expand the local film industry while assisting the state of Louisiana in recruiting new film projects. We have also been instrumental in cultivating partnerships between out of state media production companies and local firms to make the best use of available resources. We take special pride in seeing Louisiana businesses grow and prosper as a result.
We work with the Louisiana Film Commissioner’s office, statewide local municipalities, film liaisons and the UNO Foundation’s Nims Studio to fully utilize the production capacity and studio facilities.
Our Los Angeles staff has extensive experience in the entertainment industry and fully understands the process of organizing, financing, and working within the Louisiana production process.
FBT Film also proudly supports A Child’s Wish of Louisiana, a local organization which grants wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses.
