The Timehri Film Festival (TFF) is an annual film festival, aimed at showcasing the work of Guyanese and Caribbean filmmakers in the Region and Diaspora. The Festival is hosted by the Caribbean Film Academy (CAFA), in partnership with the Caribbean-American culture blog, Rewind & Come Again (RACA). This year, we will be partnering with Green Screen TT, the Environmental Film Festival in Trinidad & Tobago, and the Iwokrama International Centre for Rainforest Conservation and Development, in Guyana.
<p style="text-align: left;">Established in 2012, CaFA, is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion and support of Caribbean filmmaking and filmmakers, in the region and the diaspora. CaFA’s work is focused on promoting and sharing the art of storytelling through film from the unique perspective of the Caribbean.</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">Founded in 2008, RACA began as an online conversation about Caribbean-American life. The site has since grown to include content covering the expression of Caribbean culture throughout the diaspora. Dedicated to digging beneath stereotypical representations of the region, RACA works to shine a light on and spark conversations about the evolution of the Caribbean experience.</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">GREEN SCREEN | The Environmental Film Series was created by Sustain T&T, an environmental and sustainability education non-profit, to bring environmental messages to the public through the medium of film.</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">Dedicated as a place for research “to develop, demonstrate, and make available to Guyana and the international community systems, methods and techniques for the sustainable management and utilisation of the multiple resources of the Tropical Forest and the conservation of biological diversity”, the Iwokrama rainforest is located in the geographical heart of Guyana.</p>
