Four Barbadian films have made a great impact on Haitian audiences.
The films, all of which received Gold and Silver awards at the National Independence Festival of Creative Arts (NIIFCA), were showcased in the Film category of CRAIFESTA XII.
According to Cultural Industries Development Authority Film Commissioner Annette Nias, the four films were all very well received by local and regional audiences in Haiti.
She added that the possibilities offered to artists as a result of their participation in CARIFESTA are definitely worthwhile, as filmmakers do not only have the opportunity to network, but also to view the work produced by their regional counterparts.
The four films selected to be in the showcase were; Going Beyond, directed by Damien Pinder; Aunty, directed by Lisa Harewood; Fighting Traffic Runaway, by Ian Smith and Jason Cobham; and Fallen Empire, directed by Melanie Grant.
