CaribbeanTales International Film Festival is held in Toronto, Canada annually.

It takes a village of dreamers to make a film: directors, actors, technical, producers, editors, make up artists, set & location design, costuming, catering and of course, screenwriters. If you’re a filmmaker, enter the CaribbeanTales Festival  – for emerging and established filmmakers of the Caribbean Diaspora.

The 2017 CaribbeanTales International Film Festival will be “showcas[ing] Caribbean films from 15 selected countries around the region with public, community and online screenings. This includes 16-feature length and 20 short films in competition for the CTFF Audience Prize, which will be announced on Closing Night – September 17. The program will include an intensive four-day Market Incubator program as well as various networking sessions.” There are opps to develop content for television too.
