Trinidad and Tobago, Port Of Spain, Trinidad And Tobago
2020 trinidad+tobago film festival
It’s 2020 and at ttff, we’re celebrating our fifteenth edition all year long with outdoor and online screenings, talks and presentations, training opportunities and even a few cinema screenings!
Since our humble beginnings at the then Deluxe cinema in Port of Spain, the trinidad+tobago film festival has become a mainstay of Trinidad and Tobago’s cultural calendar, and is well-established as the premiere film festival of the English-speaking Caribbean. Screening – on average – 110 films over seven days to sold out audiences, ttff proves that Caribbean films are a dynamic and all-encompassing expression of what it is to be from this place, in this moment.
ttff/20 will include new shorts, and features, narrative films, documentaries and experimental films, which explore the Caribbean experience. In 2020 we’re also launching a new submission and prize category for student filmmakers (whether secondary or tertiary) to encourage and support the early careers of emerging talent.
Our training and professional development programmes will continue to be a core offering of ttff in 2020, with the launch of Masterclasses (intensive, multi-day online workshops led by international industry professionals), the re-introduction of filmmaker panels (which will take place via Facebook live), and more of our introductory industry workshops and training (online and in person).
