If you’ve seen something filmed in Nova Scotia in the past five years, there’s a good chance you’ve seen Koumbie. The Halifax actor and director has been a regular presence in TV shows like Mr. D and Diggstown, and appeared in local features from Black Cop to Bone Cage to Tin Can. But for the moment, Koumbie’s focus is squarely behind the camera—she’s just weeks away from shooting her debut feature, Bystanders.
