Peeking in on the T&C Film Festival

After nearly two years since the debut of this festival (full disclosure: I was involved in this), the sequel set for Oct. 17- 21, is shaping up to be quite impressive. This go around the festival is being run again by the government and features and impressive advisory board including (who else) Bruce Willis, Academy Award Winner, Paul Haggis (Crash), Shirley Franklin (the mayor of Atlantis, what?) and Robert Earl, the Chairman & CEO of Planet Hollywood. The executive directors are Actress Jasmine Guy and her Investment Banker husband, Terrence Duckette. The website has a lot of "coming soon" stuff but we'll post more as we hear it.

Update: Vivica Fox was one of the stars at the T&C Film Fest party in Los Angeles. People Magazine's got the coverage (actually it's mainly about her appearing on Dancing with the Stars this summer.)

Update 2: A photo gallery of the June event can be found here. Includes photos of Chief Minister Michael Misick and his new wife, LisaRaye.
