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

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.

KAFI KAREEM FARRELL – BIG MAN DAN

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
