The CaribbeanTales Incubator (CTI) is a year-round development and production hub for Caribbean and Caribbean Diaspora Producers that aims to create strong, compelling and sustainable content for the global market.

The ultimate goal of the CTI is to increase the pool of world-class indigenous film and television content so as to build the region’s audio visual capacity.

2016 marks a landmark year for the CTI Program. For the first time the CTI is sponsored by Flow, the Caribbean’s leading TV and communications provider, as part of its commitment to the development of the Caribbean filmmaking industry.

2017 INCUBATOR PARTICIPANTS
CTI includes the following Programs

Market Incubator Program

The CTI’s flagship program is the Market Incubator Program (MIP), a marketing and packaging forum for long-running series projects that offers selected Caribbean and Diaspora producers an opportunity to hone their creative and business skills in the context of an international marketplace environment.

CTI Accelerator Program

A specialized Business and Creative Film Intensive specifically designed to ‘accelerate’ emerging filmmakers by aiding them to prepare and pitch their projects to prospective funders in a short period of time.

The Big Pitch

Each year, participants of the Incubator have the chance to pitch to working entertainment professionals. These include acquisition and distribution executives, producers and directors who are all actively looking for new content.

Production Support Program

Created in 2015, the CaribbeanTales Production Support Program (PSP) provides mentorship support to the winners of the CTI Big Pitch!, which aims to create sustainable, income-generating Caribbean film and television content.

Pilot Production Program

FLOW will pilot a program which provides seed funding to selected producers who participate in CTI. FLOW will be selecting up to three projects per year to be funded for pilot production to be aired on FLOW networks throughout the Caribbean.

Short Film Challenge Program

CaribbeanTales supports the creation of short Caribbean films, created by people throughout the Caribbean region and its Diaspora, which tells the authentic stories of these creative producers. Selected fims will be aired on FLOW networks.

Participating in the 2016 CaribbeanTales Incubator was an overwhelmingly positive experience. The combined feedback from incubator mentors help me hone in on the need to figure out my character’s “want,” which drastically improved my project’s story potential as well as my pitch. My biggest takeaway from the program is a heightened sense of  responsibility in light of viewing my career goals within the larger context of building the Caribbean’s film and television industry.

The privilege one gains as a valued member of the Incubator is priceless. And when it’s over, you certainly knew why you were chosen in the first place, and how your life in film will change.

Dalton Narine – Director “Mas Man”

It was a life-changing experience for me. I think differently, I understand the industry and I am not lost anymore. I feel like the hero with a thousand faces of the Joseph Campbell’s Monomyth. Through the CaribbeanTales Incubator, I descended into Hell and I am now a reborn creator with a clear vision and the right tools for success.
