Call for Submissions: First Caribbean Film Mart

unnamed-60

ARC Magazine announces the call for submissions for the inaugural Caribbean Film Mart, which will take place September 24-27, 2015. The Caribbean Film Mart will be held in Port of Spain during the 10th edition of the trinidad+tobago film festival (ttff), and is seeking Caribbean fiction feature films and creative documentaries in development or pre-production.

The primary goal of the Caribbean Film Mart is to foster direct relationships between the Caribbean and the international film industry, by stimulating and creating viable cinematic co-productions.

The selected filmmakers will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with, and pitch their projects to, international film producers, film commissioners, sales agents and film funds, forging partnerships that can lead to the production and distribution of their films. The Mart will include panel discussions, networking receptions and a location tour, and participants will also be invited to attend the ttff/15 awards ceremony.

All applications must be for projects in development or pre-production to be made in the Caribbean. Either the producer or the director must be a Caribbean citizen or resident, or from the Caribbean diaspora, or an international filmmaker living and working in the Caribbean.

All submissions for the Caribbean Film Mart must be made online here no later than 22 May 2015. There is no submission fee.

The Caribbean Film Mart will be held in English, with interpreters provided as needed. Application materials should be submitted in English. If you have any questions, visit our FAQ page.
