European, T&T film festivals team up for a “month of movies”

photo

Cinema fans are in for a treat this September and October, as the European Film Festival (EFF) and the trinidad+tobago film festival (ttff) have formed a partnership to present what is being dubbed a “month of movies”.

The ttff runs from 19 September to 2 October across T&T. The EFF follows right afterwards, from 3 to 16 October at MovieTowne, Port of Spain and 9 to 16 October at MovieTowne, Tobago.

An annual celebration of the best new and recent cinema from T&T, the Caribbean and its diaspora, and Latin American countries in the Caribbean basin, the ttff is now in its seventh year.

The EFF, which is in its 16th year, showcases films from the European Union (EU), and is organised by the European Member States with diplomatic missions in T&T—France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and the United Kingdom—and the EU Delegation. This year Germany is the host mission of the EFF.

In addition to both festivals taking place back to back, a number of films at the ttff/12 will be presented in association with the EFF, the second year running that such an initiative is taking place.

Further, the ttff will assist in selecting the films that will screen at the EFF, and will also work with the EFF in a number of other areas.

“This year we are presenting a great selection of European films in close cooperation with the ttff,” said His Excellency Stefan Schlüter, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany. “In addition to the great films that will be shown at the ttff, I can promise two weeks of thought-provoking, entertaining and memorable movies at the EFF and do hope for packed theatres in Port of Spain as well as Tobago.”

    lets hope that Tobago gets some of the good films too, last year was really disappointing, the best ones on the menu were not screened on the sister isle.
