trinidad+tobago film festival

FYI filmmakers:

The call for submissions for the 2014 edition of the trinidad+tobago film festival (ttff), which takes place from 16 to 30 September, is now open.

The ttff seeks to highlight excellence in filmmaking through the exhibition of dramatic and documentary feature and short films made in T&T, the Caribbean and its diaspora. The Festival therefore accepts submissions from Caribbean filmmakers, Caribbean filmmakers in the diaspora, and international filmmakers with films from or about the Caribbean or its diaspora. Submissions must have been produced after 01 January, 2012.

The Festival screens films of different lengths in various digital formats.

The Festival also accepts submissions of video art and experimental films. Artists working in this field who are from the Caribbean and its diaspora, or who address these spaces in their work, are eligible to apply.

Films screened in competition are eligible for one or more jury prizes. There are also several people’s choice awards. All awards come with a cash prize.

All submissions must be made online, via www.withoutabox.com, trinidad+tobago film festival.

There is no submission fee. Submissions will not be returned.

THE DEADLINE FOR ALL SUBMISSIONS IS 15 MAY 2014. THIS DEADLINE WILL BE STRICTLY FOLLOWED. PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT FILMS THAT DO NOT FULFIL THE STATED CRITERIA.

In addition to screening Caribbean and diaspora films in competition, the ttff also has a (non-competitive) panorama section featuring films from around the world.

However, the Festival only accepts submissions from Caribbean filmmakers, Caribbean filmmakers in the diaspora, and international filmmakers with films from or about the Caribbean or its diaspora.

The ttff seeks to make all screenings at the Festival T&T premieres. Occasionally, however, the Festival considers films that have already been shown publicly in T&T. Please contact us directly if you have a film that falls into this category, or if you have any other queries, at submit@ttfilmfestival.com.

The ttff reserves the right to determine the eligibility of the submissions to be screened at the Festival, the appropriate venues and time slots for the screening of films, and to use excerpts of the films for publicity purposes. All films submitted must have applicable clearances and the Festival will not be held liable.

The Festival, which is in its ninth year, is presented by Flow and receives leading sponsorship from bpTT and the Trinidad and Tobago Film Company Limited.
