Flow has renewed its commitment to being the presenting sponsor of the trinidad+tobago film festival (ttff).
The new sponsorship agreement is for a period of three years, and will take the Festival through to its 2013 edition. Flow has been the ttff”s presenting sponsor since 2008.
The ttff was founded in 2006 as a celebration of the best in filmmaking from Trinidad & Tobago, the Caribbean, the Caribbean Diaspora and Latin American countries in the Caribbean Basin.
In addition, the Festival seeks to facilitate the growth of the regional film industry. Every year the ttff hosts a series of workshops, discussion panels and seminars, which are conducted by well-known local, regional and international filmmakers and other film-industry professionals.
According to Mrs Rhea Yaw Ching, Flow’s Group Head for Sales, Marketing & Communications for the Southern Caribbean, “Our relationship with the trinidad+tobago film festival has been truly successful since we first began our partnership in 2008. The recognition they have received has grown with every passing year, and it is safe to say that it has now become the largest film festival in the English-speaking Caribbean.
“We predict that this year will be no different, and look forward to another successful installment. We remain committed to promoting local arts and culture and will continue to do so through our Video on Demand platform, providing an avenue for budding filmmakers to showcase their work.”
The Video on Demand (VOD) service was started in 2009, and offers a library of local and other films from the ttff to Flow customers for viewing. 100% of all proceeds earned go directly to the filmmakers. VOD is available on channel 1000, and new content will be available in May.
Flow also engages every year in ttff ticket giveaways, so look out for giveaways for film screenings at this year’s Festival, which takes place from 21 September to October 4.
