The British Council links UK films to international audiences through film festivals and creates opportunities for the Caribbean film community by profiling innovation and excellence through creative exchange and capacity building opportunities for those working across the film and television industries.

The British Council partnered with the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival (TTFF), Jamaica Film and Television Association (JAFTA) and JAMPRO Film Commission (JAMPRO) and UK based course leader, Ludo Smolski to deliver a series of participatory workshops aimed at Story Editors, Screenwriters and Producers working in film and television in Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago.


The trinidad+tobago film festival (TTF) celebrates films from and about the Caribbean and its diaspora, as well as from world cinema, through an annual festival and year-round screenings. In addition, the TTFF seeks to facilitate the growth of Caribbean cinema by offering a wide-ranging industry programme and networking opportunities.
