Cinema on the Bayou 2016 is shaping up to be, by far, the biggest and best to date. Now that we have expanded the festival to eight days, we can bring to Acadiana a larger percentage of the more than 1000 films -- narrative features and shorts, documentary features and shorts, and animated shorts -- submitted to us by independent filmmakers from around the world. The vast majority of our nearly 200 official selections will be Louisiana, U.S. or world premieres. Those in competition within each category will be judged by panels of experts who will decide the winners of our coveted "goujon caille" (spotted catfish) award by local artists Pat and Andre Juneau.
Mark your calendars for January 20-27, 2016, and come join us at venues in and around Lafayette for film screenings, filmmaker discussions, expert panels and workshops, gala receptions, live music and after-hours parties. Watch for the announcment our official selections at the end of November and a posting of the festival schedule and ticket information at the end of December.
