The Caribbean is about to have a new film festival. From June 1-4, the inaugural Seven Sea Color Film Festival will be taking place on the Colombian island of San Andres, better known for its picturesque beaches, coral reefs, blowholes, coves and its status as a Unesco Biosphere Reserve.
Argentine producer Mauricio Brunetti
(“Corazón de León”), Juan Carvajal
(co-founder of Bogota’s indie film fest IndieBo and founder of The Classics Film Festival) and producer Ivonne Torres
(co-founder of The Classics
) have banded together to create the new festival.
Backed by the island government and actor John Leguizamo
who serves as its ambassador emeritus, the festival will focus on education, new creators, contemporary and classic films, and technology.
It plans to bring Virtual Reality artists and installations that played at Sundance and Tribeca, marking the first time Virtual Reality will be exhibited on the island.
