Judgement Day

April 12, 2018, was D-Day for Jason, the LGBTQIA coalition and the supporters of these laws gather outside the Hall of Justice in Port-of-Spain to await the judgment.

I Choose You

Narrative Short / Director: Siobhan Millette

Please See Attached

Narrative Short / Director Andrei Pierre
Young and noble Maurice is a Shoe-in to be St. Lucille’s next Vice Principal, however, when the school board steps in to make changes, his alliances come into question and he’s left to make some bold decisions. The film is meant to be a conversation piece; a door opening on little mentioned issues of civil injustice and basic human dignity; of what real friendship means, and the hypocrisy of the well-intentioned and also funny.
