Check out Cambria’s blog posts about her experiences showing BITS in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and the Carolinas on the Southern Circuit’s blog here.  A fun game you can play is guessing ‘Where is Cambria now?’

Art Around Town

November 5, 2010

We’ve finally got poster art! A special thank you to Vermont artist Janet Fredericks for her inspired illustration and to Wayne Michaud for his design work. Also, on the note of Vermont, what a wonderful turnout at the Vermont Int’l Film Festival over the Halloween weekend! We were able to debut both the film and our poster here in Burlington thanks to the talents of Janet and Wayne, the critical outreach work of Cami Davis, and the support of Deb Ellis, Gail Cook and the festival team. Thanks to all!  Now on to the South, where Cambria will be taking the film on the Southern Circuit Tour throughout November.  Check in at http://southerncircuit.blogspot.com/ where Cambria will be blogging about her experiences on the road.  These may be reposted here on the BITS Blog.

What a treat for our audiences! We also had a great time at the Woods Hole Film Festival last week, and saw some wonderful documentary films, including Barbara Kopple’s epic American Dream, Queen of the Sun (about Colony Collapse Disorder), House of Bones (a surprisingly touching film about the rise and fall of a Cape Cod home and family), and intriguing The Hand of Fatima from IFP Lab friends and co-alums August Palmer and Chris Arnold.
