The Island Cup

The Island Cup documentary tells the story of a very special, and somewhat unknown, aspect defining generations of people who are the backbone of two island communities—Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. We begin by telling the story of 2018’s annual Island Cup rival game, followed by a deep exploration of an inter-island rivalry, changing island demographics, and how the state of the sport nationwide impacts community football.
