Free film screenings in three communities—Belmont, Mayaro and Tobago—will round out the trinidad+tobago film festival’s events for the year.
On 5 December at the Technical Vocational Centre for Persons with Disability in Tobago, there will be a screening of the film Body and Soul. An uplifting documentary from Mozambique about persons with physical disabilities who have overcome prejudice to lead full, successful lives, the film will be screened to an audience comprising the centre’s students, their parents and teachers.
Next, on 15 December, a screening will be held at the Belmont Community Centre. This is taking place in association with bpTT and the Retiree-Adolescent Partnership, a mentorship organisation which brings at-risk youths together with retirees.
Finally, there will be screenings over two days—17 and 18 December—at the Mayaro Resource Centre, also in association with bpTT. On the evening of the 17th there will be a community lime, with a film screening accompanied by a barbecue. Then on the 18th there will be a family day, which will include film screenings, games and other activities.
Thanks to all our fans for making 2011 such a successful one for us. We’ll be back in the new year with an exciting programme of events, leading up to the ttff/12.
