(CNS Local Life): Early bird tickets are available at a reduced price for CayFilm 2017, the Cayman International Film Festival, through 28 May. Themed “Film, Food & Fashion”, the festival is set for 30 June-3 July and will showcase the broad range of local talent within each of the three industries through film screenings and panel discussions.

General pass tickets are selling for $40 and include access to all film screenings, panels and workshops while early bird VIP passes cost $300 and include the opening and closing events, awards ceremony and all of the screenings, panels and workshops taking place over the four-day holiday weekend. After 28 May, the respective prices rise to $50 and $400.

New this year is the introduction of a $25 one-day pass, which allows patrons to attend any one day of the festival with access to all events for that day. Students can buy tickets for $25 which gives them the same access as a general passholder for the three days.

Festival Director Tony Mark said of this year’s events: “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.”

The festival schedule is available on the CayFilm website. 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.

Many of the submitted films will be up for awards at the closing gala, in categories including best feature film, best feature documentary, best short film, best underwater film, the Paul Schrader Best Screenplay Award and the Frank E. Flowers Local Filmmaker Award.

Tickets are available at Cathy Church’s Photo Centre and through the festival website
