Jamaica to Establish Fund to Finance Film, TV Production

SAN JUAN – The Jamaica Promotions Corporation said on Friday that it plans to establish a film fund to assist with financing for the country’s creative industry.

“It is critical that we develop financing for practitioners in the film and creative industries because financing is one of the limiting factors in developing those industries,” JAMPRO President Diane Edwards said in a statement.

She did not specify the amount of money JAMPRO plans to make available.

Jamaica’s first national film festival, held last July, was a success, Edwards said, announcing that the second edition of the event will take place in October.

The film festival was followed by initiatives for two Jamaica-produced television series, she said.

“One is a soap opera and the other is a detective series. These will take about a year to develop (including) treatment, writing scripts and financing,” Edwards said.
