ttff/18 FUTURE CRITICS PRIZE

For the third year, this initiative sought to prepare students of the Ken Gordon School of Journalism at the College of Science, Technology and Applied Arts of Trinidad + Tobago (COSTAATT) for the rigour, best practices and industry standards of critical film analysis and festival reporting.

Ten students from the programme were selected to write critical reviews of films under the mentorship of  film critic and journalist, BC Pires, for posting on the ttff website and social media platforms during the Festival. Now, at the conclusion of the Festival, the best Future Critic has been selected on the basis of the quality of their writing and analysis, their ability to meet tight deadlines, and the number of reviews published.
