Deadline approaching for Caribbean films

The deadline for filmmakers wishing to submit a film for screening at the 13th edition of the trinidad+tobago film festival (ttff) to be held from 18 – 30 September 2018, is fast approaching.

Those wishing to submit a film must do so by the 14 May. A rough cut will be considered.

We accept 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 2016.

Films screened in competition are eligible for one or more jury prizes. There are also several people’s choice awards.

All submissions must be made online, via the ttff Visitor Page at

There is no submission fee.

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.

For queries, contact us directly at, or visit the FAQ page  here.

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 given leading sponsorship by BP Trinidad and Tobago.
