Kate Kensington screens at the Palm Beach Film Festival

CVI Productions presents

The Legend Of Kate Kensington

Hayley Castillo (Hayley Jennings) holds up the award for, Outstanding Director, which Brad Castillo received for his work on the film, The Legend Of Kate Kensington.

Palm Beach Film Festival

It was early Sunday afternoon on October 17, 2021. The guests were making their way into the festival and walking over to where Melony Daemer (Kate Kensington) and Hayley Castillo (Hayley Jennings) were standing in the reception area of the theatre lobby.

Within seconds it was clear that this wasn’t just your average crowd attending the screening of the film. This was family and friends who have not seen each other in a long time. 

“This is where we grew up.” Said Melony Castillo. “Our family and life-long  friends are here to see the film for the first time.”

The Palm Beach Film Festival was an incredible event, to say the least, with just over thirty films scheduled at the festival with a mixture of short films, featured films and documentaries.

Brad Castillo, the writer and director of the film was unable to attend due to a prior family commitment and shared his thoughts on his social media page.

It has now come full circle…

We brought the film home to Palm Beach County where our family and friends had an opportunity to see the film in a beautiful theatre setting.

I am overwhelmed with gratitude and thankfulness to everyone who has supported me and my family.

Those of you who know me, know that the road to filmmaking for me, started with an incredible journey through emotional pain, frustration, reflection and re-emerging with an incredible amount of Faith, and most importantly, Peace.

And it all started with Kate Kensington.
