The Trinidad+Tobago Film Festivalis pleased to announce that they will be partnering with CARIFESTA XIV to hold the Trinidad+Tobago Film Festival 2019 Carifesta Edition.
The annual Trinidad+Tobago Film, now in its fourteenth year, has become a mainstay of Trinidad and Tobago's cultural calendar and is well-established as the premiere film festival of the English-speaking Caribbean. This year's iteration of the festival, Trinidad+Tobago Film will be held in August – rather than September – to coincide with the largest regional celebration of culture in all its forms, CARIFESTA XIV. The film festival will run from 17–23 August, with free screenings at NAPA, APA, SAPA, Naparima Bowl and Shaw Park Cultural Complex.
Festival Director, Dr. Bruce Paddington, notes, "CARIFESTA is a time when the whole country is alive with culture and creativity – visitors come from all over the region and internationally too. The Trinidad+Tobago Film Festival is very excited to be able to partner with CARIFESTA XIV to bring the best Caribbean films into this important celebration of regional culture."
