The British Council is pleased to have partnered with the ttff 2016 to support Ceri Dingle's presence at the festival in her role as co-director of the UK documentary feature film "Every Cook Can Govern: The Life, Impact and Works of CLR James". We are also very pleased to have welcomed Trinidadian-born British actor, Don Warrington back home to the twin island republic. Warrington played King Lear in the 2016 Talawa Theatre Company and Manchester Royal Exchange co-production. He offered a series of acting workshops while in Trinidad.
The trinidad+tobago film festival (TTFF)
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.
I was invited by the British Council to visit Trinidad to screen the film Every Cook Can Govern which I co-directed and edited about the Trinidadian revolutionary C.L.R. James at the Trinidad & Tobago film festival.
The British Council Caribbean is delighted to welcome Don Warrington, a Trinidadian-born British actor to be part of the ttff. Warrington will be present at the screening of King Lear and for the Q+A at the ttff.
