Submit your film to the trinidad+tobago film festival

FILM FANS: Festival-goers enjoy a range of shorts and features at the trinidad+tobago film festival

FILMMAKERS ARE invited to submit material for screening at the 12th edition of the trinidad+tobago film festival (ttff) by the 15 May. A rough cut will be considered.

The ttff celebrates films from and about the Caribbean and its diaspora, as well as from world cinema, through an annual festival and year-round screenings. This year it will be held from 19 - 26 September 2017.

In addition, the ttff seeks to facilitate the growth of Caribbean cinema by offering a wide-ranging industry programme and networking opportunities.

Annabelle Alcazar, programme director of the ttff says:

“The importance of screening films from the Caribbean diaspora, during the tt film festival, cannot be over stated. They contribute to the multi-layered notions of what it means to be Caribbean, as well as provide a focal point for Caribbean connectivity between those of us ‘at home’ and ‘abroad’.

"The sharing of our similar, yet very different stories across the Atlantic, helps foster a sense of Caribbean community that stretches way beyond national boarders."

The festival accepts submissions from Caribbean filmmakers, Caribbean filmmakers in the diaspora and international filmmakers with films from or about the Caribbean or its diaspora. Submissions must have been produced after 01 January 2015. There is no submission fee.
