So, you want to be a star?

Those interested in the bright lights of Hollywood and a career in movies will have a chance to hear how local movie director Frank E. Flowers broke into the film industry at a talk at the Harquail Theatre on Monday night.

Mr. Flowers, who directed the film Haven, set in Grand Cayman, will speak alongside Rigoberto Lopez, president of the Travelling Caribbean Cinema at a symposium on film careers.

The recently launched Cayman Islands Film Commission and the Cayman National Cultural Foundation are hosting the event which will begin at 7pm and is scheduled to last two hours.

As well as hearing about possible career paths in a local movie industry, they will also be given details of training workshops from the Film Commission.

The symposium is part of Cayfest’s ‘Lights. Camera, Action’ activities.

The Cayman Islands Film Commission was launched on January 30 and is this month hosting teams from two studios interested in the islands as a location.

The Commission attended its first film trade show in Los Angeles earlier this month where it distributed a directory of local-based talent and support services, ranging from actors, directors, sound and lighting engineers to accommodation, car hire and security.

Admission to Monday’s event is free. Email [email protected] to secure a seat or get more information.
