Barbadians are being invited to come out in their numbers for the 3rd Travelling Caribbean Film Showcase (TCFS), which will feature the work of some of the region’s finest filmmakers from May 24 until June 7.
It is being staged by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Foreign Trade, in collaboration with the Cuban Institute of Film, Art and Industry (ICAIC) at The Errol Barrow Centre for Creative Imagination (EBCCI), University of The West Indies, Cave Hill Campus.
The TCFS comprises 43 films, which will be exhibited in 31 countries of the Caribbean region as a way of breaking linguistic barriers and favouring cultural exchange within the region through cinematographic productions.
Screenings will run nightly from 7:00 p.m. with Sunday screenings beginning at 6:00 p.m.
Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Charles Burnett, will deliver remarks at the press launch of the film festival at the EBCCI, on May 18, beginning at 10:00 a.m.
For further information on the film showcase, interested persons are asked to contact De Carla Applewhaite at the EBCCI at 417-4776.
