** About the Festival
--------------------------------------­----------------------
Cinema on the Bayou Film Festival, founded in 2006 by filmmaker Pat Mire, is an annual five-day film festival in the heart of Cajun country. The Festival is committed to presenting nationally and internationally acclaimed documentary and narrative fiction films and filmmakers with truly original voices and to advancing the understanding of Cajun and Creole cultures through film screenings, film panels and cultural exchanges among French Louisiana, the United States and the Francophone countries of the world.

Cinema on the Bayou Film Festival presents world, U.S. and Louisiana premieres of new, cutting edge fiction and non-fiction films from around the world in a relaxing, filmmaker friendly environment, laced with Cajun culture's unique identity markers, including exquisite cuisine, great music and joie de vivre.

The Festival is presented by Cinema on the Bayou Film Society, a non-profit Louisiana corporation.

** 9th Cinema on the Bayou Film Festival Set for January 22-26, 2014
--------------------------------------­----------------------
Cinema on the Bayou Film Festival, now in its ninth year, will open with the Louisiana Premiere of Phil Comeau’s Secretariat’s Jockey, Ron Turcotte, on Wednesday, January 22, 2014, at 6:30 p.m., at Acadiana Center for the Arts in downtown Lafayette. This documentary film is an extraordinary road movie that follows legendary jockey Ron Turcotte, a native of New Brunswick, Canada, and one of the few jockeys to win America’s Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing.

Comeau, an award-winning filmmaker based in Montréal (Québec) Canada, and a native of Nova Scotia, will be a special guest at this year’s Festival. He will attend the opening night screening of the film, which was produced by the National Film Board of Canada. A reception will follow the film screening with complimentary wine, appetizers and music. Tickets for the opening night gala, including the film and reception, are $10 per person and will be available for purchase at acadianacenterforthearts.org (http://cinemaonthebay...­) and at the door.

In addition, the Festival will present a retrospective of Comeau’s documentary and narrative fiction films, which will be screened throughout the Festival, including a screening on Saturday, January 25, 2014, of Comeau’s The Nature of Frédéric Back, who was an Academy Award winning animated short filmmaker, with Academy Award winning Moonbot Studios’ newest film, The Numberlys.

The Festival will close on Sunday evening, January 26th at AcA with the Louisiana Premiere of the award-winning film, This Ain't No Mouse Music!, which tells the story of Chris Strachwitz and Arhoolie Records and features such musicians as Mance Lipscomb, Michael Doucet, Pine Leaf Boys, Taj Mahal, Clifton Chenier, and the Savoy Family Band. Filmmakers Chris Simon and Maureen Gosling will attend the film screening, which will be followed by a reception and music performance by Ann Savoy and Friends with Michael Doucet.

Nearly 40 films will screen at this year’s Festival, including world, U.S. and Louisiana Premieres, with over 60 film screenings and events at the following venues: Acadiana Center for the Arts, Vermilionville, the Lafayette Parish South Regional Branch Library,
Cité des Arts and Pack and Paddle.
