Caribbean Film Forum presents its first virtual event:

Screening Caribbean Cinema: A Conversation with Film Festival Directors

This event will be held in Spanish, this Wednesday, March 3rd @ 2:00pm.

Dunja Fehimović (Newcastle University) and Mary Leonard (Universty of Puerto Rico – Mayagüez) will have the pleasure of talking to Diana Vargas (Havana Film Festival New York – HFFNY), Marangeli Mejia-Rabell (Philadelphia Latino Film Festival – PHLAFF), and Harold Leonard (Festival de Cine Europeo de Puerto Rico, Competencia para Cineastas Puertorriqueños) about the role of film festivals in the ecosystem of Caribbean cinema and the challenges of festival organising in times of Covid-19. We will be joined by film festival scholar and expert, Professor Tamara Falicov (University of Kansas).

The Caribbean Film Forum aims to contribute to the development of a network of filmmakers, curators, scholars, and film lovers around the shifting, sometimes-elusive, but always dynamic category of ‘Caribbean film’. Crossing physical and linguistic borders, we strive to facilitate contacts and conversations that put the spotlight on Caribbean film and film in the Caribbean – a Caribbean that expands out from the islands and mainland territories around the Caribbean Sea to diasporic populations all over the world. Please get in touch with us if you would like to propose an event.

Please join us via Facebook Live on the Caribbean Film Forum Facebook page, where you will be able to ask questions and participate in the discussion.
