Celebrating Our Amazing Stories in Film
The 8th Annual CaribbeanTales Toronto Film Showcase
Celebrate an explosion of films from the Caribbean Diaspora, with interactive workshops, screenings and networking sessions.
CaribbeanTales, produced in partnership with Harbourfront Centre, is accepting submissions until June 30, 2013 for its 2013 Film Showcase.
The Caribbean is coming to voice in Film. An explosion of talent in images and sound is taking place across the Region and the world. Literally hundreds of filmmakers from the Caribbean and its Diaspora — Europe, North America, Africa, India, Lebanon, and on — are taking up the camera as powerful weapons for the expression of their unique voices, and many extraordinary film stories are being released.
We are proud to be Caribbean!
This year’s festival runs September 4 - 15 with screenings at Toronto's Harbourfront Centre.
