Since 2008 Flow, the presenting sponsor of the ttff, has provided a platform for some of the more popular films of the festival by making them available on their pay-per-view channels in the months preceding and following the festival.
Last year, Flow demonstrated its ongoing commitment to the growth of the local film industry with the launch of its VoD service. VoD provides Flow customers with a diverse selection of local and Caribbean films, with 100% of all proceeds going directly to the filmmakers.
The ttff/11 selections that will be available on Flow include the Best of the 2010 Anime Caribe festival, Boys of Summer, Calypso Rose: Lioness of the Jungle, Chris Dennis: Between Worlds, Classical Steel, Crazy Love, Faces of a City: Willemstad, Curacao, Festival of Lights, Hit Me with Music, The Creators, To be King, Unravelled, W.A.R. Stories, Wan Pipel and Women in Hats.
(Go here for synopses of the films.)
Customers can access VoD on channel 1000, 24 hours per day. Also on offer apart from the ttff selections is a large library of movies, music and television shows which customers can watch at their convenience. VoD also features pause, rewind, fast-forward and stop features.
