Fig Tree News TeamThe 2nd Annual Bahamas International Film Festival (BIFF) once again celebrates “Cinema in Paradise” ... BIFF invites everyone to join the 2nd annual Fundraiser at Nygard Cay, Nassau, Bahamas - Saturday, September 17, 2005.

On Saturday, September 17th - come and meet the Cast and Filmmaker, Frankie Flowers, of the film Haven. Shown at the Toronto International Film Festival, Haven will make its debut in The Bahamas. Haven, is a thrilling feature film shot entirely in the Cayman Islands and the culture is vivid in every scene displaying beautiful shots of the islands. Frankie Flowers, first time filmmaker, is sure to be the next modern maverick to come out of the Caribbean and pave his way to a very successful career. Haven is the story of two shady businessmen (Paxton and Dillane) who flee to the Cayman Islands to avoid federal prosecution. But their escape ignites a chain reaction that leads a British native (Bloom) to commit a crime that changes the nation. It’s “Pulp Fiction in the Islands.”

Join the big celebration as the 2nd Bahamas International Film Festival Fundraiser kicks off a grand event. Savor hors d’oeuvres, watch a star-studded film, rub shoulders with the who’s who in Hollywood, buy authentic Bahamian Original Paintings and Bags, win a trip of a lifetime on US Airways and dance the night away under the stars. All this happens on one night – Saturday, September 17th at Nygard Cay.

All proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit the Bahamas International Film Festival Filmmakers Residency Program. Be a film industry insider for a night, and discover what goes into the making of a movie - get the lowdown by engaging in a question and answer session with the Filmmaker and the cast of Haven.
