The ttff seeks to highlight excellence in filmmaking through the exhibition of fiction and documentary feature and short films 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 2019.
Films screened in competition are eligible for one or more jury prizes. All submissions must be made online, via FilmFreeway

THE DEADLINE FOR ALL SUBMISSIONS IS 21 MAY 2021. THIS DEADLINE WILL BE STRICTLY FOLLOWED. PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT FILMS THAT DO NOT FULFILL THE STATED CRITERIA.

The ttff seeks to make all screenings at the Festival Caribbean or T+T premieres. 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 hello@ttfilmfestival.com.

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.
