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 co­pro­duc­tions.

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, co­pro­duc­tions, 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 sub­mit@ttfilm­fes­ti­val.com no later than 24 Au­gust 2016. In­ter­ested per­sons are asked to visit: ttfilm­fes­ti­val.com for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion.
