CTI has partnered with FLOW, who is our lead sponsor, to provide funding to selected producers who participate in CTI.
Up to three projects per year will receive pilot funding for their series projects.
FLOW may also provide, at their discretion, funding for series arising from these pilots, with rights to distribute the produced content on Flow in the Caribbean Region and Panama.
I can say that the CaribbeanTales Incubator program has elevated my status in the Dominican film community. The things I learned in the program, like preparing for a professional pitch, definitely aided in securing the funds for my first feature film, which I’ll be producing next month.
There was a sense of camaraderie that we experienced near the end of the workshops when we really started to help each other out with tips and moral support before and after the Big Pitch.
The whole process made us also connect with old and new filmmakers and contacts back at home and revived a project we wanted to do for a long time.
Regardless of your level of expertise, the workshops are an excellent venue to hone your craft. The mentors really push you to go further so to get those pitches as concise and catchy as possible. It helps to get ideas and comments from other people which serve as a springboard to actual pitches.
