A look back

The fortnight of the Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival was a seriously hectic period. Film screenings, workshops, discussion panels, cocktail receptions…there was so much to cover that we couldn’t possibly blog it all as it happened. Our cameras were constantly clicking, however. Here’s a sampling of stuff we chronicled but didn’t get to blog at the time.
