The ttff seeks to highlight excellence in filmmaking through the exhibition of fiction and documentary feature and short films made in Trinidad and Tobago, the Caribbean and its diaspora. The Festival therefore accepts submissions from Caribbean filmmakers in the region and in the diaspora; and international filmmakers with films from or about the Caribbean or its diaspora. Submissions must have been completed after 01 January 2019. For full submission guidelines and categories, please visit our portal on Film Freeway.

ttff/21 will include new shorts, and features, narrative films, documentaries and experimental films, which explore the Caribbean experience. Filmmakers – whether student, emerging or established – with films that fit our criteria are welcome to apply! Our 2021 festival will be a hybrid, with a combination of online and in-person events and screenings – as required by Trinidad & Tobago Government regulations.

Our training and professional development programmes will continue to be a core offering of ttff in 2021, and will include, Masterclasses (intensive 3-day workshops led by international industry professionals), filmmaker panels, introductory industry workshops and presentations, and youth-focused mentorship and training.
