announcing the ttff/22 call for submissions!

We’re delighted to announce the call for submissions for the 17th edition of the trinidad+tobago film festival, ttff/22! The ttff seeks to highlight excellence in filmmaking through the exhibition of fiction and documentary films and experimental works 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 2020. For full submission guidelines and categories, please visit our portal on Film Freeway.

ttff/22 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 2022 festival will be a hybrid, with a combination of online and in-person events and screenings – all in keeping with the guidelines of the Trinidad & Tobago Government.

Our training and professional development programmes will continue to be a core offering of ttff in 2022, and will include, Masterclasses (intensive workshops led by international industry professionals), filmmaker panels, introductory industry workshops and presentations, and youth-focused mentorship and training.
