Frame by Frame - Jaime's Blog

Exciting news from Cape Breton Island!

Cape Breton Island has been showcased as a top tourist destination in Canada for many years.  A great deal of chatter has been for its incredibly stunning landscapes and charm. Too add, the vibrant Scottish culture is embedded in the fabric of many communities in Cape Breton. The strong Mi’kmaq and Acadian communities further add to this vibrant Island.

With a deep history as a nautical paradise, the Island also has a long history as an industrial hub in North America. It would be amiss not to recognize the emerging potential from this Island, and it is clear there is some growth in the area of film production on the Island. Just this past weekend, a film showcase  was held at Cape Breton University, organized by the newly formed Film Cape Breton.
