There are a number of T&T films making their premieres at the T&T Film Festival, which opens September 19 with the screening of the film adaptation of Michael Anthony’s Green Days by the River.
One festival film that’s likely to generate a lot of conversation is The Weekend, a short narrative drama directed by Sean Hodgkinson. It stars Cindy F Daniel, Chris Smith, Andrew Friday, Stephen Hadeed, Jr and Frances de Lancey in its ensemble cast.
The Weekend’s budget was a meagre $17,000 TT.
That amount of money couldn’t cover the blink of an eye in the typical Game of Thrones show; the HBO series costs upwards of US $10 million per episode. No dragons and White Walkers? A regular network TV drama still costs US $3 million an episode.
