COYOTE GIRL screening at Cinema on the Bayou Festival on Saturday January 28th!


We are delighted to announce we have been officially selected to screen at the Cinema on the Bayou Festival on Saturday, January 28th at 10:30 a.m. as a part of the Narrative Shorts Series! The COTB Fest takes place in Lafayette, Louisiana and COYOTE GIRL will be screened at the Acadiana Center for The Arts.

Our venue! The Acadiana Center for the Arts!

It’s truly an honor to be screened at a festival that “is committed to presenting nationally and internationally acclaimed documentary and narrative fiction films and filmmakers with truly original voices. ” We are proud to be considered in such good company… And we must say, the COTB Fest promises to be a blast:

“…screening new, cutting edge, fiction and non-fiction films from around the world in a relaxing environment, laced and embellished with Cajun culture’s unique identity markers, exquisite cuisine and great music.  We screen uncompromising, thought-provoking films that make us laugh and cry; engage in serious discussions about matters important to independent filmmakers; and have a lot of fun and good times with old friends and make important connections with new friends who share our commitment to quality film. “

The festival is in it’s 12th year and has selected quite an inspiring array of films. We hope that if you can, you’ll make it to the screening of our little film named “Best Experimental Film” at the Boston International Film Festival, and join in on the vibrant range of art and culture of Lafayette!

This is our second film to go to Snake Alley. In 2013 One Year’s Crop was nominated for Best Documentary ! In celebration let’s take a trip down memory lane:

Artistic director, writer, actor, artist Robert Biggs talks about One Year’s Crop. Very interesting to watch now and draw similar parallels from his interview to our newest tale, Coyote Girl.

Here are some pics of the last time Biggs and Sims were at Snake Alley:
