The Timehri Film Festival (TFF) is an annual Guyanese and Caribbean film festival aimed at showcasing the work of Guyanese and Caribbean filmmakers in the Region and Diaspora.

Overall Rating

    Given the set back that the team must have indeed suffered due to COVID- 19, communication was still awesome, along with the overall execution of the festival. I am proud for my production to have been selected and to have a seat with other excellent Caribbean films!

    Elodie and myself were really honoured that our film was selected for this festival. Although I was unable to attend I was kept up to date and the excellent publicity made up for this!
