CaribbeanTales International Film Festival

The CaribbeanTales International Film Festival (CTFF), our flagship program, celebrates its 15th year in 2020.

According to the 2016 Census, there are nearly 2 million Canadians of Caribbean and African origin, not including those born in Canada. CTFF serves this important demographic, as well as those from the wide Caribbean Diaspora, including Europe, the Americas, China, India and the Middle East. 

CTFF celebrates the talents of established and emerging filmmakers of Caribbean and African heritage who practice their art across the Caribbean Diaspora worldwide.

CTFF presents a multi-ethnic mix of exciting and dynamic films that showcase diverse and shared stories as well as cultures.
