Local films to screen on ferry from February 14
From February 14, hundreds of passengers taking the ferry between Trinidad and Tobago will be treated
to local films as on-board entertainment.
The Trinidad and Tobago Film Company (TTFC) has entered into an agreement with the Trinidad &
Tobago Inter-Island Transportation Company, which runs the ferry service under the Port Authority of
Trinidad and Tobago (PATT).
"We can start the screening on the T&T Spirit which departs from Tobago daily," said Vilma
Lewis-Cockburn, Manager of Marketing and Public Relations of the
Trinidad & Tobago Inter-Island Transportation Company.
Each sailing transports hundreds of passengers between Trinidad and Tobago. Many passengers pass the
voyage by watching programmes on the ferries' on-board screens. TTFC has agreed to provide films for
screenings on each sailing. The respective filmmakers will be paid royalties for the screenings.
"The screening of these local films will give passengers the opportunity to view the talent and production
of our local people. Also, it allows our passengers to recognise that our local film industry is developing and
can be compared with [work made by] foreign producers." Lewis-Cockburn added, "It is also our
company's support and promotion of all things local."
The TTFC initiated discussions with PATT, offering to partner with them to allow the screening of suitable
local short and feature films on sailings. This was agreed to in principle in November.
Such a move represents an incredible opportunity for T&T film, as it will expose thousands of viewers to
local content. It also represents an opportunity for filmmakers to earn additional income from their
products, a representative of the TTFC said.
