The award winning Nova Scotia born filmmaker and actress joins us in studio to talk about everything including how she got her start, her incredibly supportive community, her forthcoming theatre productions and so much more! Listen…

Broadcast Date – November 29, 2017

I was so happy when the award winning and wonderful young filmmaker and actress Koumbie popped into the CoveFM studios for a chat.

Koumbie with host Stephanie Beaumont

The Nova Scotia born phenom has provided a ton stellar stuff to feature on SEA AND BE SCENE over the years.  From her work on screen the small screen in award winning productions like Mr. D and STUDIO BLACK!, to her recent big screen role in BLACK COP to her efforts behind the scenes with both WIFT (Women in film and television) and the Atlantic Filmmakers Cooperative (AFCOOP), to even writing and directing her own films – Koumbie is a force! And at the moment that force is focused on the theatre –  directing a new play about the Halifax Explosion called “Lullaby” and in rehearsals for a role in another called “At this Hour” which will open December 16th. We’ll talk about all of that and so much more including auditions, busy schedules, candy canes and car rides – here’s my conversation with Koumbie!
