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.

Francisco Montas – Writer/Director

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.

Michael Mosca – Producer – Equinoxe Films

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
