And we’re off

Looking back: Renel Brown is the title character in Rain, the debut feature film by writer and director Maria Govan of the Bahamas. Rain will open the trinidad+tobago film festival 09 on September 16

The countdown is on. It’s now 40 days to the start of the trinidad+tobago film festival 09 (that’s the official way to write that, BTW).

Between now and the launch of the festival on September 16, this will be the place to check for all the latest news, updates, and behind-the-scenes info. Myself and my co-blogger Melanie Archer (hi, Mel!) will present some of our favourite picks from the more than fifty films set to be screened, and focus on a number of the directors, including some who will be here for the festival.

Blogging will take place every couple of days or so until the festival begins, when there will be multiple postings daily. We welcome your feedback–indeed, we thrive on it–so please, feel free to comment on anything we write about (or don’t write about that you’d like to mention anyway).

In my next post I’ll give a potted history of the trinidad+tobago film festival, and a brief overview of what you can look forward to seeing and experiencing during this year’s event. For now, welcome, and we hope this blog helps get you as excited for the festival as we are.
