Fifty-six Caribbean shorts announced for 2013 trinidad+tobago film festival


The short and medium-length films that will screen at the 2013 trinidad+tobago film festival (ttff) have been announced. Fifty-six of these films will be shown in all at the ttff/13, which runs from 17 September–01 October.

The 56 films—both fiction and documentary—represent 18 countries in the Caribbean and the diaspora. Twenty-eight films (exactly half) come from from T+T. In addition, 13 of the films will be in competition, for either Best Short Film or Best Local Short Film.

“As ever, the largest section of our film lineup is our short films section,” said Jonathan Ali, Editorial Director of the ttff. “And also as ever, the selection of shorts is wonderfully diverse, in terms of content, style and countries represented. We hope audiences will enjoy the films chosen.”

The Festival, which is in its 8th year, has already announced its opening and closing night films (Half of a Yellow Sun and Tula: The Revolt, respectively), as well as its 22 Caribbean features. Still to be announced are the panorama features (films from world cinema) and the experimental films playing in the New Media section.
