Big news in New Orleans. A local coyote paid a visit to the second floor veranda of a hot dog emporium at the corner of Frenchman and Chartres. Quell Surprise! The morning shift opened up to find a young coyote behind the door. Both creatures shied, yipped, and ran the other way, the coyote to the veranda overlooking Frenchmen, the human to a smart phone and animal control. Meanwhile Coyote nestled into a corner and waited, looking down on fools looking up to see a coyote. 1/24/17
COYOTE GIRL screened Saturday morning, 1/28, at Cinema on the Bayou Film Festival in Lafayette, LA. A big thank you to Pat and Rebecca and all the volunteers who made Cinema on the Bayou such a pleasant place to hangout for a weekend. Time well spent in the company of film lovers and filmmakers from around the world. COYOTE GIRL was beautifully exhibited. Picture and sound were gorgeous. Props, kudos, congrats. 1/30/17
With our January 28th screening at Cinema on the Bayou, COYOTE GIRL played her swan song as a festival entry. Our shelf life is up. Thanks to the Snake Alley Festival of Film, New Arts Film Festival, Route 66 Film Festival, Boston International Film Festival (Best Experimental Film), Twin Falls Sandwiches Film Festival and Cinema on the Bayou for giving our story an audience. All a storyteller ever really needs is someone to listen and play along. 2/3/17
After several wonderful Mid-Western festivals near our shoot location (and our Westfield friends & family) we’re delighted to have the opportunity to screen in our home state of Massachusetts.
The festival promises a diverse crowd of inspiring fellows : ” … a festival dedicated to rewarding artists for their individual talents and for their creative expression through the medium of film. The festival strives to bring together in Boston local, national and international filmmakers by promoting the world’s most artistic and creative independent and experimental films.”
On BostonIFF’s welcome page Governor Baker says, “The Boston International Film Festival celebrates those artists who, through the power of cinema, capture our imagination to make us laugh and cry, think and change” and Festival Founder, Patrick Jerome, says, “The filmmakers will be sharing their diverse and powerful visions of humanity. Our greatest hope is that through these films the audience will be inspired and encouraged to embrace all the world’s cultural diversity and work towards a more understanding, peaceful world.” Sounds pretty great to us!
We’ll see you at the Route 66 Film Festival on Saturday, November 7th. Our film will be playing in Session 5 held between 7 and 10 pm. The festival is in Springfield, IL, just West of our shoot location on the Biggs’ Farm in Westfield.
The Route 66 Film Festival is in it’s 14th year and we are very honored to be a part of it! We are looking forward to experiencing this festival that claims to have “something for everyone” from shorts to features, experimental films to docs, local to international films.
On their Facebook page they state: “The general theme of our festival is journey, whether emotional, physical, spiritual or personal. We strive to introduce audiences to talented artists from around the world, as well as the American Midwest.”
