AWARDS

We offer a selection of awards each year, most notably the “Caribbean Spirit” award for the film that shows the best qualities of Caribbean people and showcases excellence in filmmaking. Other awards include Best Feature, Best Documentary and Best Short.

PROGRAM

Our film selection panel has received numerous entries and after a rigorous process has programmed a number of films that we believe will be enjoyed by audiences in Toronto. This year we have selected 10 feature films for competition, paired with a number of short films that complement the featured selection.

13 YEARS OF CARIBBEAN FILM

LIGHT IT UP

It’s a call to action. A call to arms. A call to change. A call that’s been ringing out for a long time and Caribbean filmmakers are answering that call in force. We’re asking them to focus their light on all the changes in the world, to showcase their vision of change and spread their message, to lead the way. The world can be a dark place, but we can look at that darkness and say “Light it Up.”
