Festival to Screen Local Film Submissions

Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands – Weeks after announcing that the 2018 CayFilm Cayman International Film Festival was cancelled, Festival Director Tony Mark has confirmed that the show will go on (again), albeit on a smaller scale. The five local films that were submitted for this year’s Festival will be screened on Friday, 29 June at the Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman ballroom.

“I was devastated when we had to cancel CayFilm this year because I felt we were just gaining some momentum as we approached our fifth anniversary. Skipping a year would have been a step in the wrong direction, and I was disappointed that Cayman film enthusiasts would miss out on seeing some amazing movies,” said Mr. Mark. “I am so grateful to our new partner PSI-Key Entertainment who basically came in and saved the day, and I can’t wait to see these films on the big screen and celebrate the talent of our local filmmakers.”

Mr. Mark says he and the team at PSI-Key Entertainment are already working on CayFilm 2019 but for now he’s just happy that this year’s edition of the Festival has been picked back up.

The screening on Friday, 29 June takes place at 8pm with cocktails starting at 7pm. Admission is free and open to 300 people only on a first-come, first-serve basis. There will be refreshments and a cash bar.

About CayFilm Cayman International Film Festival

CayFilm Cayman International Film Festival is an annual multi-day spectacular event designed to create new interest and excitement about the Cayman Islands as a world-class filming destination. Included in the festival will be daily film screenings, question and answer sessions with filmmakers, panel discussions, workshops, exclusive premiere screenings, and two celebrity gala events. It is our vision to open up the Cayman Islands to the film industry around the world whilst opening up the world to Cayman’s young and aspiring filmmakers.

The Festival team is also working to develop the Cayman Media Academy (CMA) under the CayFilm umbrella to educate Cayman’s youth by offering classes and qualifications relating to different career fields within the industry. This will be run throughout the year with the eventual goal of having a full-time degree programme available at our own purpose-built facility. Young children will have their own specially designed programmes to inspire and give confidence about their own unique abilities as filmmakers.
