For nearly two decades, Caribbean Beat magazine has covered the arts, culture and lifestyle of the Caribbean with a panache and sophistication that no other publication has come close to matching.
We were very pleased, therefore, when, a few years ago, Beat became an official media sponsor of the trinidad+tobago film festival. This year, to coincide with the Festival, the September/October issue of the magazine focuses on Caribbean film.
In addition to a piece on the ttff in the issue, there is also a story on the “new wave” of Caribbean cinema. The story gives a short history of the Caribbean’s film industry, and profiles a number of young filmmakers from the region, most of whom have either screened films at the Festival, or will be screening films at the Festival for the first time this year.
If you haven’t yet read the current issue of Beat, check it out now.
