For the second year in a row, Trinidad+Tobago Film Festival will present a showcase of narrative and documentary films representing the Caribbean at the upcoming Havana Film Festival in Cuba. 

More details from the press release below: 

Entitled Caribbean Calling, the showcase comprises four feature-length and five short narrative and documentary films, all of which screened either at this year’s ttff or the ttff/12. The films represent a wide cross-section of the non-Spanish speaking Caribbean, and come from countries such as Aruba, Barbados, Martinique and Trinidad and Tobago.

Officially known as the International Festival of New Latin American Cinema, the HFF - which, in its 35th year, is the oldest film festival in the region, runs from December 5-15. Caribbean Calling takes place from December 6-10.

The lineup is as follows:

Features

Broken Stones (Guetty Felin, Haiti, 2012)

Payday (Selwyne Browne, Barbados, 2013)

Poetry Is an Island: Derek Walcott (Ida Does, Suriname/Aruba/The Netherlands, 2013)

Songs of Redemption (Miquel Galofré + Amanda Sans, Jamaica/Spain, 2013)

Shorts

Auntie (Lisa Harewood, Barbados, 2013)

The Gardener (Jo Henriques, Aruba, 2013)

One Good Deed (Juliette McCawley, T&T, 2012)

Passage (Kareem Mortimer, Bahamas, 2013)

Vivre (Maharaki, Martinique, 2013)


A number of the filmmakers with work in Caribbean Calling will be in Havana to introduce their films and engage in Q&A sessions after the screenings.

In addition to the Caribbean films in the showcase, Bruce Paddington’s documentary on the Grenada Revolution, Forward Ever: The Killing of a Revolution, which had its world premiere at the ttff/13, will screen at the HFF as an official selection.

"Cuba, with its great cinematic tradition, has long been a byword in the wider world for Caribbean cinema," said Jonathan Ali, ttff Editorial Director, and one of two ttff team members who will attend the HFF. "We are therefore pleased to once again present at Havana a showcase of films reflecting the rich diversity of contemporary Caribbean cinema, both in terms of style and content."
