Announcing the ttff/20 Call for Submissions

UPDATE: 22 May – the 2020 ttff call for submissions has now closed.


ttff/20 celebrating 15 years in 2020!

Port of Spain, Monday 03 February 2020: The trinidad+tobago film festival is pleased to announce the call for submissions for our 15th anniversary festival, ttff/20! Submissions can be made through our festival portal on Film Freeway.

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 2018. For full submission guidelines and categories, please visit our portal on Film Freeway.

ttff/20 will include new shorts, and features, narrative films, documentaries and experimental films, which explore the Caribbean experience. As always, the festival will include curated film screenings at Movietowne (Port of Spain, San Fernando and Tobago) and a programme of outdoor screenings of favourite classics, People’s Choice and jury award-winning films.

In 2020 we’re also launching a new submission and prize category for student filmmakers (whether secondary or tertiary) to encourage and support the early careers of emerging talent.

Our training and professional development programmes will continue to be a core offering of ttff in 2020, with the launch of Masterclasses (intensive 3-day workshops led by international industry professionals), the re-introduction of filmmaker panels, and continuing our introductory industry workshops, and youth-focused mentorship and training.
