CaribbeanTales International Film Festival (CTFF) is an annual event that celebrates the talents of established and emerging filmmakers of Caribbean and African heritage who practice their art across the Caribbean Diaspora worldwide. The event takes place each year in September and is now offering viewership online and in-person experiences.

2022 will mark the 17th edition of the CaribbeanTales Film Festival and we can’t wait to welcome our audiences back in person across the Greater Toronto Area and online!
