    I am very disappointed that there were no screenings in Tobago besides the few community shows! As a patron of past film festivals on both islands I feel the festival needs to have a place equally on both isles. I was really looking forward to seeing “Better Mus Come”. Only to realize film enthusiasts on the island were left out the loop!!

    Thanks for the comment. Our programming for Tobago is something we’ll examine closely again next year as we recognise the need for balance on both islands.
