CTWD supports the creation of short Caribbean-themed films, through a range of themed short film Challenges held throughout the year. The program provides visibility and a platform for emerging and established producers to develop their voices and filmmaking skills. The SFC is open to people of Caribbean nationality or heritage throughout the Caribbean region and the Diaspora, and seek to spotlight the authentic stories of our communities and our lives.
Visibility opportunities through the SFC
Short-listed film may receive the following:
- Screening at the CaribbeanTales International Film Festival
- Broadcast on CaribbeanTales-TV, our online PPV platform
- Broadcasts on Flow TV and on the Flow OTT network.
Regardless of your level of expertise, the workshops are an excellent venue to hone your craft. The mentors really push you to go further so to get those pitches as concise and catchy as possible. It helps to get ideas and comments from other people which serve as a springboard to actual pitches.
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.
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.
