The ttff seeks to highlight excellence in filmmaking through the exhibition of fiction and documentary films and new media works made in T&T, the Caribbean and its diaspora. • • We therefore accept submissions from Caribbean filmmakers, Caribbean filmmakers in the diaspora, and international filmmakers with films from or about the Caribbean or its diaspora.
• Submissions must have been completed after 01 January 2020.
• Films screened in competition are eligible for one or more jury prizes.
• All submissions must be made online, via FilmFreeway.
• Films must be Caribbean or Trinidad and Tobago Premieres (Note: preference will be given to the former). Occasionally, however, the Festival considers films that have already been shown publicly in T+T. Please contact us directly if you have a film that falls into this category, or if you have any other queries, at
• Films cannot be screened at other Caribbean-focused film festivals during September 2022.
• For online screenings the Festival must be allowed to geo-tag for the entire CARICOM region. See CARICOM country-listing here:

The ttff reserves the right to determine the eligibility of the submissions to be screened at the Festival, the appropriate venues and time slots for the screening of films, and to use excerpts of the films for publicity purposes. All films submitted must have applicable clearances and the Festival will not be held liable.

    TTFF will always be a special festival to me, it's such a great way to meet other Caribbean filmmakers and see what the best in the region has to offer. The panels this year were really interesting and there was a wide range of topics to choose from. I was very glad to be featured this year and considering that everything was online, the ttff did a commendable job....I'm already looking forward to next year.
