Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands – Cayman’s premier film festival is fast approaching, and tickets are now on sale. CayFilm 2017 takes place from June 30th to July 3rd and promises to be a jam-packed weekend of films and panels.

This year the festival theme is Film, Food & Fashion. The event will showcase the broad range of local talent within each of the three industries. Movie lovers, aspiring filmmakers, budding actors, foodies and fashionistas alike should take advantage of early bird prices which are available until May 28th. Early Bird General Passes cost CI$40 and include access to all film screenings, panels and workshops while early bird VIP Passes cost CI$300 and include the exclusive opening and closing gala events and awards ceremony and all of the screenings, panels and workshops taking place over the four-day holiday weekend. After May 28th General Passes will cost CI$50, and VIP Passes will cost CI$400.

New this year is the introduction of a one-day pass, which allows patrons to attend any one day of the festival with access to all events for that day. Those passes cost CI$25 each. Students can be a part of the Festival too for CI$25 and enjoy the same access level as a General Passholder for the three days.

Festival Director Tony Mark says to expect surprises at this year’s festival.

We’re very excited to be bringing in the fashion and food elements for our third staging of Cayfilm. These are two industries that are thriving in Cayman right now, and we have been able to incorporate them into the festival in creative ways. We hope that it will attract a new group of attendees.”

Featured films and documentaries this year include local films “Unwritten,” “Sacrifice” and “Hotels” and international films “D-Love,” “The White King”, “Out of State” and “A Plastic Ocean” with hundreds more screening throughout the four days.

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.
