The Listening Room Film Festival was founded by music entrepreneur Henry Turner Jr. in 2022. 

It was established to give new and established filmmakers a place to screen their music and entertainment driven films in a comfortable environment. The focus of the festival is on musicians, actors, entertainers and people who were pioneers or influencers in the entertainment industry, as well as musicians who provided music for soundtracks. It also features show business panels with Louisiana based professionals and executives.
