CaribbeanTales International Film Festival Partners With Afroglobal Television Media Partnership

CaribbeanTales International Film Festival (CTFF) welcomes Afroglobal Television as the Official Media Partner for this year’s festival. “CTFF provides a platform to showcase films from the Diaspora and magnifies the voices of Black filmmakers.

We congratulate Frances-Anne Solomon and the amazing team for the 2020 line up. Afroglobal Television is proud to be the leading media sponsor for the 2020 festival,” exclaimed Moses A. Mawa, President & CEO of Afroglobal Television.

On Wednesday July 8th, 2020 at 7pm EST, CTFF will announce its 2020 Livestream programming on the CaribbeanTales-TV online platform as it marks 15 years of celebrating the talents of established and emerging filmmakers of Caribbean heritage. The evening’s festivities include special congratulatory messages, a retrospect of CTFF’s history and the cast talkback and screening of CTFF founder Frances-Anne Solomon’s award-winning film Hero: Inspired by the Extraordinary Life and Times of Mr. Ulric Cross.

“For 15 years CaribbeanTales has amplified our Caribbean stories and allowed Toronto audiences access to films they wouldn’t otherwise see,” said Festival Director Diana Webley. “Now that we have had to move the festival to an online platform due to COVID-19, we expect to have even more people watching our livestream from the comfort of their homes.”

The CaribbeanTales Film Festival runs from September 9th until October 2nd and will take place on the Video-On-Demand CaribbeanTales-TV (CT-TV) platform with nine nights and 25+ short and feature films of livestream entertainment. CT-TV is an innovative subscription-based digital streaming platform that provides access to African & Caribbean-heritage films and TV programs to schools, educational institutions and audiences worldwide.

In honour of CTFF’s 15th anniversary and legacy in festival programming, a screening of Hero will be made available for viewers in the Toronto area. Following a successful world tour that began with its premier at the 2018 CTFF Film Festival, the story of Ulric Cross has garnered several awards including: TTFF 2018 People’s Choice Award, 2019 AMAA Award for Best Diaspora Narrative Feature and the Ja’Net Feature Narrative Award from the Pan African Film Festival where it was the Opening Night film.
