The Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival (TTFF) is seeking Caribbean filmmakers interested in attending its second annual Caribbean Film Mart from 24-25 September 2016. The Caribbean Film Mart, to be held during the 11th edition of the TTFF, will focus on Caribbean feature film projects (narrative and documentary) in development or pre-production. The Mart seeks to foster direct relationships between the Caribbean and the international film industry, by stimulating and facilitating viable cinematic productions and co-productions.
The selected filmmakers will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with, and pitch their projects to, international film professionals in the field of production and distribution. The Mart will include presentations on international appeal and visibility of local films, co-productions, and strategies for marketing films in different territories, distribution and the role of sales agents.
All applications must be for feature film projects in development or pre-production to be made in the Caribbean. Either the producer or the director must be a Caribbean citizen or resident from the following territories: the English-speaking Caribbean, the Netherlands Antilles, and Haiti.
Submissions for the Caribbean Film Mart must be made to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 24 August 2016. Interested persons are asked to visit: ttfilmfestival.com for further information.
