Actor John Schneider brings film festival to ‘burbs


Georgia-born actor, writer and director John Schneider is coming home again, and he is bringing some 20 films from around the world – and yes, he appears in one.

Schneider, who burst on the scene in 1979 as one of the young co-stars of the TV comedy “The Dukes of Hazzard” and has gone to work as actor, screenwriter and director, now has built the 58-acre John Schneider Studios in Baton Rouge, La.

With his partner producer Alicia Allain, they are doing what filmmakers do; take their films to a film festival.

“Only we don’t go to Cannes and wait for the people to come to us. We take the films to the people,” Schneider said.
