Jamaican films to premiere at festival in Trinidad

Five local films will premiere at the upcoming Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival (TTFF), slated for September 19 to 26 in Port-of-Spain.

The projects are ‘Code’ by Sarah Manley; ‘Fever Dream’, Nile Saulter; ‘Mango Wars’, Kyle Chin; ‘One Patty’, Gay Magnus and ‘This City of Mine’ by Danielle Russell.

The opportunity came from the Propella Initiative, a thrust by Jamaica Promotions Corporation (JAMPRO) and Jamaica Film and Television Association (JAFTA), to support the talent of Jamaican film-makers and garner international exposure for the culture through film.

Film Commissioner at JAMPRO, Renée Robinson, explained that Propella is a script-to-screen programme that nurtures Jamaican content creators and enables them to tell their stories cinematically by providing funding and technical support.
