The Second Caribbean Film Showcase will take place in October this year. This is a joint effort of the Cuban Institute of Film Art and Industry (ICAIC) and UNESCO, in collaboration with Ministries of Education, cultural institutions, and filmmakers, intellectuals and artists in the various territories. The Showcase programme will be made up by a selection of fiction films and videos, documentaries, and animated films by Caribbean creators, whether living in the Caribbean or abroad, targeted specifically for the child and adolescent audiences.
