About the Film
The Award-Winning Seawall, short film, shot entirely on location in Guyana, had its world premier at the 64th Festival de Cannes in France, one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious, showcases celebrating the best and brightest new works in film. The short has also played at The Caribbean Film Corner in London, the Bahamas, and festivals in the US including the Kansas City Urban Film Festival and the Goethe-Institut, Washington DC.
“The feedback has been tremendous and the feature aims to be even better” says former President of FROG and the film’s Producer, Scott Stadum. FROG, the film’s official fiscal sponsor, has helped to raise over $20,000 for the production and “our goal is to the increase amount of support for the film and to reach a wider audience. We also want to support Mason in telling this beautiful, heartfelt story set in Guyana.”
“The topic of the feature is emigration and to highlight issues changing and challenging Guyanese culture within its borders and across the globe” says Mason, the film’s Guyanese-born filmmaker, Winner of the 2012 Sony Pictures Diversity Fellowship, ”this night of celebrating cinema, art, and Guyana is all for a great cause.”
