This 22–25 April, the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival (TTFF) will present the inaugural Tobago Jazz Film Festival — a celebration of music and Tobago through film — as part of the Tobago Jazz Experience. Dancehall, jazz and classic Cuban music all finding a place in the lineup.
“Tobagonians have been asking for their own film festival, and the Tobago Jazz Experience provides the perfect opportunity for us to do this,” explained Dr Bruce Paddington, Founder and Festival Director of the TTFF. “We are thrilled to be highlighting the talent of Tobago’s young filmmakers, alongside internationally acclaimed films centred in music.”
The line-up of open-air screenings includes projects by Tobagonian filmmakers alongside international films with a focus on music. Supported by after-parties and limes, dinner with the movies, prize giveaways, and an industry workshop for Tobago-based filmmakers, there is something for everyone (aged 16 and over) in this film festival. Admission to all events is free.
