9ème édition.

Français

L’objectif du ttff/14 est de mettre en lumière le cinéma et les réalisateurs des Caraïbes. Si le noyau dur de la sélection est composé de films caribéens, le festival explore également les passerelles entre cinéma expérimental et installations artistiques via sa section New Media et a pour ambition de lancer un marché du film caribéen (The Caribbean Film Mart) et une base de données de l’industrie du cinéma de la zone Caraïbes (The Regional Film Database), lors de l’édition 2015 (l’année prochaine).

Fondateur + Directeur du Festival : Bruce Paddington
Programme Director (Directrice de Programme) : Annabel Alcazar
Creative Director (Directrice Créative) : Emilie Upczak
Press Attaché (Attachée de Presse) : Anne Pampin
