SABS 7th Birthday Salute for July 20th from Koumbie

Posted: July 20, 2017

So happy to see this smiling face!

Today's #SABS7 Birthday Salute comes from Award Winning, Nova Scotia born writer, director, producer and actress Koumbie.

Enter her name and you'll be eligible to WIN a just issued, official FIN T-shirt as our daily prize for July 9th, 2017 and qualify for our HEAVENLY STAY grand prize draw.

That's the perfect prize for the day since Koumbie's film HUSTLE AND HEART took home the trophy for Best Atlantic Short at the Atlantic Film Festival (FIN) last fall and will compete this Saturday, July 22nd on CBC's Short Film Face-Off.  Koumbie will be on the broadcast to screen her film - vying for the title of Short Film Face-Off champ!

Amazing right?! Truth be told this young lady has been wowing us since we first saw her work on Mr.D. back in 2012.  She shared her Cool People Profile with SEA AND BE SCENE and ever since we've been busy covering all of the amazing projects she's been involved with and created.  Her dedication and commitment to her craft was really what put her on SABS 2016 ONES TO WATCH List and true to form - Koumbie has produced plenty to keep our eyes on.

From her work on screen in productions like her awarding mini-series STUDIO BLACK!, to her efforts behind the scenes with both WIFT (women in film and television) and the Atlantic Filmmakers Cooperative (AFCOOP), to helming her own films - Koumbie is a force!

These days you can find her focusing on theatre -  directing a new Karen Basset play called "Lullaby" and acting in another directed by Ryanne Chisholm called "Slut" - both of those shows will tour in the fall.

With her crazy busy schedule it's a wonder she had a minute to pose for the picture, but we're sure glad she did!

Koumbie thank you so much for always making time for SEA AND BE SCENE and for this lovely #SABS7 Birthday Salute! You're the very knees of the bee! SABS
