CTWD supports the creation of short Caribbean-themed films, through a range of themed short film Challenges held throughout the year. The program provides visibility and a platform for emerging and established producers to develop their voices and filmmaking skills. The SFC is open to people of Caribbean nationality or heritage throughout the Caribbean region and the Diaspora, and seek to spotlight the authentic stories of our communities and our lives.

The Short Film Challenge will be advertised throughout the year.
Stay tuned for 2016 Challenges!
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.
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.
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
