SANTA MARIA, Calif. – Allan Hancock College associate faculty member and Emmy-winning filmmaker Robin Smith has a new documentary debuting at the Cambria Film Festival on Feb. 11.

The new documentary, "Something to Crow About", provides a behind-the-scenes look at the Cambria Scarecrow Festival where local artists create hundreds of scarecrows that eventually are staged in downtown Cambria and San Simeon each October.

Smith has been making films for 40 years, but her experiences teaching film editing as part of Allan Hancock's film and video production program improve her professional skills.

“I learn so much from my students. They are in touch with emerging trends and styles. There is a lot of give and take that is beneficial for my own work as well.” explained Smith.

Interested in catching the premier of "Something to Crow About"? Tickets for the Feb. 11 festival are $10 and can be purchased at the door or online here.
