Tomorrow (24 September) the Commonwealth Foundation in conjunction with the trinidad+tobago film festival will be hosting a discussion panel entitled The future of co-productions: what next for the Caribbean?
The panel will look at the recommendations coming out of an extensive Commonwealth Foundation report on film, The Bigger Picutre: A Way Forward for Film in the Commonwealth, including co-production treaties and the Cultural Protocol of the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA), and will discuss what opportunities these tools bring and what is required to ensure their potential is fully realised, as well as what their limitations are and what else is needed.
Participants will include Carla Foderingham of the Trinidad and Tobago Film Company, Bruce Paddington of the trinidad+tobago film festival, filmmaker Tony Hall of T&T;, and Nadia Denton of the British filmmakers’ collective BFM.
The panel takes place from 9am to 12.30pm at the Normandie Hotel, 10 Nook Ave, St Ann’s, Port of Spain. There is no charge.
