My Father Belize Premiers at 2019 Film Festival

Kirby Garcia

The 2019 Belize International Film Festival opens tonight at the Bliss Center for the Performing Arts and several pieces will be showcased at the inaugural event.  Among them is My Father Belize, a short film that is written, produced and depicted by Belizeans living abroad.  Kirby Garcia is an actor in that film.


Kirby Garcia, Actor, My Father Belize

“We want to make sure that we show the real Belize, so if you want to see a movie that’s heartwarming, you know, and that’s just touching, and just show you the real Belize, come see My Father Belize.  I’m telling y’all, you know, you don’t wanna miss this.  This is a representation of all of us as Belizeans here. It’s family.  I mean you all know, we all know here how important family is and connecting with family.  So that’s kind of what we really wanted to bring in relationships, in mending and helping to heal, but we do it in a way where it’s not boring, it’s not completely dramatic.  We have great elements of some laugh which we all love to laugh and we have a family member that can bring out that laughter within us when there’s moments of like, you know, pain or drama in our lives.  Mr. Kirby Garcia here, he does an amazing job at bringing that out within the film.”
