The call for submissions, for filmmakers wishing to have their film screened at the eleventh edition of the trinidad+tobago film festival (ttff), which takes place from 20 September to 02 October, is now open.
The ttff seeks to highlight excellence in filmmaking through the exhibition of fiction and documentary feature and short films made in T&T, the Caribbean and its diaspora. The Festival therefore accepts submissions from Caribbean filmmakers, Caribbean filmmakers in the diaspora, and international filmmakers with films from or about the Caribbean or its diaspora. Submissions must have been produced after 01 January, 2014.
The Festival screens films of different lengths in various digital formats.
Films screened in competition are eligible for one or more jury prizes. There are also several people’s choice awards. All awards come with a cash prize.
All submissions must be made online, via the ttff Visitor Page at https://vp.eventival.eu/ttff/2016
There is no submission fee. Submissions will not be returned.
THE DEADLINE FOR ALL SUBMISSIONS IS 15 MAY 2016. THIS DEADLINE WILL BE STRICTLY FOLLOWED. PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT FILMS THAT DO NOT FULFIL THE STATED CRITERIA.
The ttff seeks to make all screenings at the Festival T&T premieres. Occasionally, however, the Festival considers films that have already been shown publicly in T&T. Please contact us directly if you have a film that falls into this category, or if you have any other queries, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The ttff reserves the right to determine the eligibility of the submissions to be screened at the Festival, the appropriate venues and time slots for the screening of films, and to use excerpts of the films for publicity purposes. All films submitted must have applicable clearances and the Festival will not be held liable.
The trinidad+tobago film festival (ttff) celebrates films from and about the Caribbean and its diaspora, as well as from world cinema, through an annual festival and year-round screenings. In addition, the ttff seeks to facilitate the growth of Caribbean cinema by offering a wide-ranging industry programme and networking opportunities. The ttff is presented by Flow.
