The CaribbeanTales Incubator (CTI) is a year-round development and production hub for Caribbean and Caribbean Diaspora Producers that aims to create strong, compelling and sustainable content for the global market.

The ultimate goal of the CTI is to increase the pool of world-class indigenous film and television content so as to build the region’s audio visual capacity.

2017 marked a landmark year for the CTI Program. For the first time, the CTI is sponsored by Flow, the Caribbean’s leading TV and communications provider, as part of its commitment to the development of the Caribbean filmmaking industry.

Participating in the 2016 CaribbeanTales Incubator was an overwhelmingly positive experience. The combined feedback from incubator mentors help me hone in on the need to figure out my character’s “want,” which drastically improved my project’s story potential as well as my pitch. My biggest takeaway from the program is a heightened sense of  responsibility in light of viewing my career goals within the larger context of building the Caribbean’s film and television industry.

The CTi Market Incubator Program was a great step for me in developing my skills as a producer. The intensity of going through all the steps of development that are easy to bypass to get to the creative elements of production was time well spent. The in-person mentorship we received was simply invaluable.

I can say that the CaribbeanTales Incubator program has elevated my status in the Dominican film community. The things I learned in the program, like preparing for a professional pitch, definitely aided in securing the funds for my first feature film, which I’ll be producing next month.
