Lights, camera, action… Cayman style.
The third Travelling Caribbean Film Showcase will present all types of films, promising to wow crowds starting today and running until Sunday, 6 February.
“For Cayman, and the Caribbean region as a whole, the TCFS provides a great opportunity for exposure of films from the Caribbean, about the Caribbean and by Caribbean film makers,” says Lorna Bush from the Cayman National Cultural Foundation.
“It is important because, while films from outside the region have proven extremely useful and give Caribbean people a sense of the world, they do not address the specifics of Caribbean arts, culture and identity,” she says. “For Cayman, which with the establishment of the Cayman Islands Film Commission, is beginning to emerge as a player in regional filmmaking, this is a great opportunity for our young filmmakers to see the work and to network with their counterparts.”
The work of Frankie Flowers, Jr’s Haven, is being showcased in this series, she says.
The film showcase has evolved since its first year.
“The standards are getting better and better and there is greater interest locally,” Lorna says. “There are more films covering a wider range of topics and the technical and artistic facilities have improved considerably.”
