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.

Check out the highlights of our amazing Big Pitch, Breakfast At TIFF!

Create. Pitch. Distribute. Only with CaribbeanTales.

The Incubator programme took me out of my comfort zone  to face the challenge of self and then to embrace the journey with other talented individuals.  In addition  the Mentors gave their time and wisdom to challenge and enhance us all which combined to make this an unforgettable moment in time.

MENELIK SHABAZZ – HEAT

There was a sense of camaraderie that we experienced near the end of the workshops when we really started to help each other out with tips and moral support before and after the Big Pitch. 

The whole process made us also connect with old and new filmmakers and contacts back at home and revived a project we wanted to do for a long time.

MONIQUE PATRICK THOMPSON – MONEY MONEY MONEY

The feedback given has been extremely helpful but as also been motivation to keep moving forward in my career.  The excellent choice of helpful mentors and the feedback from the professionals after my pitch was much needed.  I was especially grateful for the feedback given on my script by the story editor- script writing can be such a solitary process – her professional feedback was a gift.  I hope the program continues to move forward from strength to strength
