new development strand for tt filmmakers at ttff/23

FILMCO is pleased to announce the creation of a new programming strand for ttff/23: made in t+t (official selection/ eligible for people’s choice award only) a developmental programming strand for new and emerging filmmakers who reside in Trinidad and Tobago, and are making films in and/ or about Trinidad and Tobago. Submitted films can be short, medium length or feature, documentary or narrative, and must demonstrate the filmmaker’s commitment, passion for storytelling and potential for further development (through feedback, mentorship etc). 

Eligible filmmakers should have produced no more than two short films or one medium-length or feature film. First-time filmmakers are encouraged to submit. If accepted, filmmakers will be expected to attend in-person review sessions in June and July of 2023, and make further edits to their films (based on mentor feedback) in preparation for public screenings in September and October at ttff/23.

Please note that in order to facilitate the mentor feedback, filmmakers for this category must submit via Film Freeway by the regular deadline which is 31 March 2023.
