It’s a special anniversary for Zoë Saldaña …
Haven, the 2006 thriller from Frank E. Flowers that featured the 38-year-old half-Dominican/half-Puerto Rican American actress, Orlando Bloom and Anthony Mackie, will get a special tenth anniversary presentation at Cayfilm, the second annual Cayman International Film Festival.
Saldana, Mackie and co-star Victor Rasuk are among those who will be on hand for the reunion, as will Flowers, who is a Caymanian filmmaker.
Flowers will debut a never-before-seen director’s cut of the movie at the fest, which is set to run July 1-4.
Festival director Tony Mark said the reunion and special screening is intended to inspire more young Caymanians to get involved with film, as well as draw attention to the need for the CayFilm Cayman Media Academy to help train local up-and-coming filmmakers.
“Haven is an important part of the Cayman film community,” said Mark. “Frank has inspired an entire generation of young Caymanian filmmakers, and we are looking forward to welcoming him and the cast to the festival.”
Among the event’s other programs will be a spotlight on Star Wars, with Robert Watts, who worked on the films, set to receive the burgeoning fest’s lifetime achievement award, while below-the-line craftsmen such as Oscar winner Ben Burtt also will be in attendance.
Also set to appear at the festival is Wesley Snipes who will present the best feature film award at the closing night ceremony on July 4.
