T&T Film Nights rolls into Sangre Grande

Positive-and-Pregant-602x401

The recently opened Sangre Grande North-Eastern Settlement Community Centre will be the venue for an exciting evening of local movies as the next installment of T&T Film Nights, hosted by the trinidad+tobago film festival (ttff) and sponsored by the Trinidad & Tobago Film Company (TTFC), takes place.

The event is carded for Sunday 6 May and begins at 5pm. Admission is free and the films are for all ages.

This edition of T&T Film Nights is presented in association with Citizen Security Programme (CSP), an initiative of the Ministry of National Security, whose objective is that of contributing to the reduction in crime and violence in a number of “high-needs” pilot communities in Trinidad and Tobago.

CSP also focuses on such issues as teenage pregnancy, HIV/Aids awareness and drug and alcohol abuse. Some of the films that will be shown explore a number of these issues.

The films being screened are Positive & Pregnant, directed by Stacy Lela; SHHushed, directed by Mandisa Pantin; Pashan of the Froot, directed by Nadissa Haynes; and Dirty Clothes, directed by Dawn Pritheesingh. All four films, a mixture of drama, comedy and animation, were selections of the ttff/11.

Before the screenings there will be a short talk given by a representative of the Community Police.

“Citizen Security Programme is pleased to collaborate with the ttff in addressing social issues,” said Rachael Joseph, CSP’s Community Action Officer. “We see this collaboration as a meaningful way to help effect social change. We know that change is a process, not an event, and so we look forward to further collaborations with the film festival.”

The ttff is held annually in September and is presented by Flow, given leading sponsorship by RBC Royal Bank and bpTT, and supported by the TTFC, the National Gas Company, the Tourism Development Company, the Tobago House of Assembly and the Ministry of Arts and Multiculturalism.
