Just as the media world is on fire with strong voices of colour, CaribbeanTales International Film Festival will be lighting up screens with provocative, on-point films that showcase the issues we all think about. CaribbeanTales provides a platform for filmmakers of Caribbean decent around the world to share their stories about the world.
Associate Festival Director Diana Webley says, “Our festival theme this year is ‘Light it up’. It’s a call to action. A call to arms. A call to change. A call that’s been ringing out for a long time. And now Caribbean filmmakers are answering that call in force. To focus this global appeal beyond our Canadian experience, we are asking our filmmakers to shine their lights on all the changes in the world, to showcase their vision of change and to spread their message…..to lead the way.”
For the 13 time, CaribbeanTales returns to Toronto and will run from September 5-20 . Check out the full line up and get your tickets at www.caribbeantalesfestival.com.
