ttff/18 Caribbean Film Mart

The primary goal of  tttf/18 Caribbean Film Mart (CFM) is to provide local filmmakers with professional levels of  exposure and interactions between the T+T and the international film industry. This will be achieved by setting the scene for  stimulating and creating viable cinematic co-productions; exploring new platforms and markets of distribution; and reviewing international best practices among other twelve (12)narrative feature film and creative documentaries  in development or pre-production.T

Twelve selected filmmakers will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with, and pitch their projects to, international film producers, sales and acquisitions agents and film funds, forging partnerships that can lead to the production and distribution of their films.

The successful candidates and their projects are:

Dance the Cocoa – Juliette McCawley

 Mas Slaughter – Christopher Din Chong

The Jaguar – Ryan Khan

Virus – Michael Rochford

Steel – Glenford Adams

Igual Paradise – Shea Best

Wishing for Wings – Kim Johnson

Silk Road – Janine – Mendes-Franco

Trinidad’s Missing – Reynald Seydass

Hey Handsome – Roderick Weever

Fairway – Kafi Kareem Farrell

Right and Left – Sonja Dumas

A cash prize sponsored by BP Trinidad and Tobago for the Best Pitch will be awarded at the end of the ttff/18 CFM.

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.
