CaribbeanTales International Film Festival 2017

September 6 – 21, 2017

CaribbeanTales International Film Festival 2017 presents a full range of films that showcase the variety, breadth and depth of the Caribbean's legacy. Each film tells a unique story. Together, these films will transform our audiences' appreciation for Caribbean storytelling. At CaribbeanTales we see our Caribbean legacy as the context for our own day to day reality, and we know that this legacy has always been shaped by larger global realities.

Many of the stories we tell can be traced to events and decisions that originated in far away places - Europe, Africa, India, China, the Middle East, North and South America and even Japan. These are the roots of the Caribbean Diaspora.

CaribbeanTales International Film Festival opens Sept 6th and runs to Sept 21, 2017. For film details and ticket info visit: caribbeantalesfestival.com.

Me on my TV 2 Episode 2(23) | WORLD PREMIERE
In Me on My TV, the 10 teams – selected from hundreds of applicants for the CTI, which Flow sponsors – embark on five action-packed creative days in Toronto. Under the guidance of 12 international mentors, they pitch their TV series concepts to a room full of television industry executives at the largest film event in North America: The Toronto International Film Festival.
