Travelling Caribbean Film Showcase

TCFS films cover a wide variety of subjects: short, feature length and animated films for people of all ages. The Showcase is a creative and effective way to share films that are not readily available online, in theatres or in stores. All films are subtitled when not in English.

TCFS has received support from 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 audiovisual productions and their dissemination through the national broadcasting TV stations of the Member States.

TCFS films from previous showcases have aired on Cayman 27, at Cayfest, Red Sky at NIght and at outdoor venues. Selections have included the Cuban masterpiece “20 Years” by Barbaro Joel Oritz, Jennifer Galvin’s poignant documentary “Free Swim”, set in the Bahamas, and the wonderful children’s film, “The Baobab Tree” by Claire Ince, which was also a selection for the Chicago International Children’s Festival.
