Caribbean content remains one of the most sought after globally yet remains largely untapped. That is the basis by which RealVibez, the entertainment subsidiary of Blue Mahoe Capital, will launch its inaugural online film festival.

The three-day event will be held, August 25-27 and will feature a hybrid format with the face-to-face part being held at the Purplepalms Creative Studio in Wynwood, Miami.

The Festival will feature: Workshops and seminars; pitch sessions; screenings of films.

The workshop/seminar segment will have, over the three days: 10 workshops; 3 pitch sessions; screening of films received.

Already on board as sponsor partners are the Jamaica Tourist Board, Blinsky, Ava Stewart from State Farm Insurance and parent company, Blue Mahoe Capital Partners.

The festival will also host an online auction of running (track and field) sneakers donated by Adidas Agent, Cubie Seegobin.

Festival Director and former Film Commissioner of Jamaica, Carole Beckford thinks the timing is right as the Caribbean is the focus of economic activity in several industries. “We are targeting the creative sector, as one that we think has tremendous potential for wealth and job creation. We plan to initiate partnerships that will take a project from idea to execution.”

Veteran American broadcaster Neki Mohan has been appointed Ambassador for the festival and the advisory team will include film, media and entertainment officials with global reach.
