We’re delighted to announce a new ttff initiative, Limin’ Live – an informal, 20-minute, one-on-one chat, with creative and film industry folks, about the art, business, joys and challenges of working in film and television. Limin’ Live will take place every Monday at 5pm AST on Instagram live @ttfilmfestival, and subsequently made available on igtv. We hope the chats will be inspiring, entertaining, and interesting to a varied audience of creative practitioners in the Caribbean.
