UofT's Caribbean Film Festival
On March 7th and 8th the Caribbean Studies Students Union (CARSSU) and the Cinema Studies Students Union (CINSSU) from the University of Toronto will be hosting the first-ever Caribbean Film Festival at the William Doo Auditorium on U of Tʹ St. George Campus.
This festival will showcase documentaries and narrative films that pertain to the Caribbean region, its diaspora, and will traverse a number of topics that delve into gender, race, ethnicity, popular culture, politics, sustainability of the environment, as well as the standing legacies of colonialism that still haunt the Caribbean. Our current line-up includes films with stories and histories from Dominica, Guyana, Jamaica and Trinidad. Prior to screening each individual film, an introduction will be made to the film and followed by a brief Q + A discussion with the director.
