From CBC - October 13, 2017

It started out as a school project.

But now a short film about a small Cape Breton fishing village is headed to Hollywood.

Emily Fricker's documentary Neil's Harbour: A Day Down Homewill air at the Los Angeles International Underground Film Festival in December.

Screenings will be held at a theatre on Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood.

Fricker, 24, made the documentary as part of her coursework in screen arts at the Nova Scotia Community College last year.

She graduated from the program this spring.
