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.

The Incubator programme took me out of my comfort zone  to face the challenge of self and then to embrace the journey with other talented individuals.  In addition  the Mentors gave their time and wisdom to challenge and enhance us all which combined to make this an unforgettable moment in time.

MENELIK SHABAZZ – HEAT

The feedback given has been extremely helpful but as also been motivation to keep moving forward in my career.  The excellent choice of helpful mentors and the feedback from the professionals after my pitch was much needed.  I was especially grateful for the feedback given on my script by the story editor- script writing can be such a solitary process – her professional feedback was a gift.  I hope the program continues to move forward from strength to strength

JULIETTE MCCAWLEY – BITTER FRUIT

The CTi Market Incubator Program was a great step for me in developing my skills as a producer. The intensity of going through all the steps of development that are easy to bypass to get to the creative elements of production was time well spent. The in-person mentorship we received was simply invaluable.
