The new chairperson of the Film Control Board told Cayman 27 it’s not looking to stamp out anyone’s creativity.
Rita Estevanovich said the board’s primary function will be to provide the viewing public, parents in particular, with more information about what’s in a film so there are no surprises.
The board, comprised of Ms. Estevanovich, Miss Cayman Tonie Chisolm, and Andrew Ebanks is brand new.
While the Film Control Board has the authority to ban films at their discretion, Ms. Estevanovich said that’s not what it’s all about.
“In no way shape or form, especially with the team we have there, do we want to stop creativity or freedom of expression but we certainly want people to be aware of what films contain before they go out and see them,” said Ms. Estevanovich.
The film control board members will serve three year terms.
