The trinidad+tobago film festival (ttff) announced its strategic decision to expand its online presence this year with online screenings of over 120 films that explore the Caribbean experience.
The highly anticipated annual festival is set to return from 9th to 15th September 2020.
Interim Executive Director of FILMCO Mariel Brown said that the company has embraced the challenges of Covid-19 and adapted the delivery of the programme to suit.
“We want our audiences to be able to watch brilliant films made in and about the Caribbean, and to feel safe doing so.”
“Making the switch to a primarily online festival is a big change, but we hope our online programme will be well-received by our traditional audience and also bring new fans to the trinidad+tobago film festival,” said Brown.
TTFF is well-established as the premiere film festival in the English-speaking Caribbean, and this year’s programme includes new shorts, features, narrative films, documentaries, experimental films, as well as panels and training opportunities.
This year, ttff/20 has added a new prize category for student filmmakers to support emerging talent.
The Festival has also launched its Masterclasses – intensive online workshops led by international industry professionals.
In addition, introductory industry workshops and training will be offered online and in-person.
Advance tickets for screenings will be available from 26 August at the following locations:
Movietowne Port of Spain, for Movietowne screenings only:
- ttff office, 22 Jerningham Ave, Belmont, for opening night tickets and tickets for online screenings
