A066_C004_0101PS.0001291F

Twenty-six feature films from beyond the Caribbean will screen in the Panorama section of the 2013 trinidad+tobago film festival (ttff), as the Festival completed the announcement of its lineup today.

The ttff, now in its 8th year, takes place from 17 September–01 October, and screens feature-length, short and experimental films from the Caribbean and its diaspora. The Festival also screens feature-length fiction and documentary films from world cinema in its Panorama section.

This section comprises films from Latin and North America, as well as from Trinidad and Tobago’s “heritage” regions, including countries in Africa and Europe, India, and, for the first time, China. The majority of these are new or recent films that had their world premiere at some of the most prestigious film festivals in the world, including Cannes, Toronto, Sundance and Berlin.

The announcement of the 26 Panorama films brings the number of features screening at the ttff/13 to 49. The total number of films screening at the Festival, including short films and experimental film and video works in the New Media section, is 151.

“The ttff will present a programme of world cinema, alongside our Caribbean selection of films, in order to offer our audiences the opportunity to see films primarily from the global south that will enlighten and entertain,” said Emilie Upczak, Creative Director, ttff. “And we are pleased to be able, with the support of our partner diplomatic missions, to host a group of filmmakers and talent from selected Panorama section films to be present to engage with our audiences.”
