Film festival flyer (295x300).jpg(CNCF): The fourth edition of the amazing Travelling Caribbean Film Showcase will be presented from July 9 – 14 in the Studio at the F.J. Harquail Cultural Centre, featuring documentaries, features, short and animated films. The 4th TCFS offers 39 unique looks at the Caribbean and its diaspora. From award-winning films such as the Barbadian/UK documentary Catch A Fire directed by Menelik Shabazz to Eduardo Barberena’s socially conscious and controversial feature Cheila: A House for Maita, to fun animated films such as Jose Garcia’s The Mischievous Rabbit, the TCFS is sure to educate, inspire and entertain audiences of all ages.

The Travelling Caribbean Film Showcase (TCFS) is an annual film festival representing filmmakers from the Caribbean, Africa and its diasporas. TCFS is produced by the Travelling Caribbean Film Showcase Office, a division of the Cuban Film Institute (ICAIC) located in Havana, Cuba. CNCF is the Organising Committee for the Cayman Islands.
The Showcase is a creative and effective way to share films not readily available online, in theatres or in stores. Organisations, businesses and schools are welcome to attend the Festival as well as browse the film synopses from the various Showcases and rent TCFS films. All films are subtitled when not in English.

TCFS is supported by ICAIC, UNICEF, UNESCO and MINCULT, and seeks to encourage film and audiovisual co-productions among Member States as well as promote the exchange of films and audiovisuals to be disseminated through the national broadcasting TV stations of the Member States.

Three TCFS films will also be shown on Cayman27.
