The tour will provide visitors with a sightseeing tour experience in Jamaica, along with a copyrighted guide to the history of film production in Jamaica and its locations.
According to Caribic, the tour has been developed from research by author Peter Polack whose book, Jamaica Land of Film, will be published by Cambridge Publishing in 2017. The company is promising that the tour and book will chronicle new and previously unavailable information on over a hundred years of film production in Jamaica.
Said Vanessa Polack of Cayman Island- based Commercial Services: “My father has written the book and we are the owners of the tour content.
“Directed at cruise ship passengers and overnight visitors seeking an alternative experience in Jamaica outside the adventure and nature attractions prevalent on the North coast. Jamaica Land of Film will be an enduring tribute to a long history of successful film production of many famous movies in Jamaica such as Papillon, James Bond films and nearly seventy other international films,” she added.
“There are also plans to establish a multimedia operation locally and internationally as well as a documentary to be submitted to film festivals.”
CEO Roy Page of Caribic remarked: “This is a milestone for Caribic and Jamaica. A new and compelling historical and cultural tour that will draw visitors not only on the island but the large number of film fans interested in past and present movies with a connection to the ultimate film production destination, Jamaica.”
