Wanted: Caribbean Movies, VISION, MOMENTUM, ACTION! – Film Marketplace: CARIBBEANTALES 2011
CaribbeanTales has had an amazing year!
Following the success of our 2010 Symposium and Marketplace that attracted not only regional film professonals and audiences, but buyers and executives from South Africa, the USA and Canada, CaribbeanTales Worldwide Distribution Inc. was launched in Barbados in May, aimed at creating money-making opportunities for producers of Caribbean content.
In September 2010, CTWD hosted the first CaribbeanTales Market Development Program for a contingent of 40 filmmakers and industry stakeholders during the Toronto International Film Festival. Building on this momentum, CaribbeanTales is delighted to announce the following opportunities for filmmakers:
