The National Cultural Foundation is inviting local film makers to submit films to be screened at the CARIFESTA edition of the Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival (TTFT), being held from Saturday, August 17, to Friday, August 23.

The event will feature free screenings at various venues, and showcase new shorts, features, animation, narrative films and documentaries from around the Caribbean region and its diaspora, as well as a few guest countries.

The film festival will be curated, and each participating country will be asked to identify, recommend and submit up to five new films that have not been previously shown at the TTFT, and were completed after January 2017.
