My excitement can't be contained!!! I'm going to Jamaica for the inaugural Jamaica Film Festival. The Jamaica Film Festival, scheduled to be held in Kingston, July 7 – 11, 2015, is shaping up to be a powerful one, which will showcase the talents of the best and brightest in the Jamaican film industry. The festival promises to be a dynamic cinematic and cultural event, featuring both local and international movies.
There will also be a music day that will include workshops and a live reggae concert at the Tuff Gong International Recording Studios. An exclusive beach party is planned for Saturday, which is geared to be a celebration of “fun in the sun,” against the visual bliss of the majestic Blue Mountains, as a backdrop in the distance. Trust and believe my beach gear is packed!!
Among the guest presenters are Emmy-nominated actress Tonya Lee Williams, who is best known for her character Olivia on the soap Opera Young and the Restless; actors Dorian Gregory who you may recognize for his work on the series Charmed; and Brian J White, a popular face from the TV dramas Scandal, Suits and The Shield; as well as Dale Godboldo, who is currently filming FX's American Crime Story: The People V. OJ Simpson. Other resource persons expected to attend are Paula Madison, Stephen Bishop, Bernard Stewart and Jeffrey Riddick.
