Commonwealth Shorts, Caribbean Voices

Following two previous film initiatives, we are pleased to introduce you to the writer-directors taking part in the upcoming Commonwealth Shorts, Caribbean Voices film workshops.

These early career filmmakers and screenwriters from the Caribbean have been selected to attend a two-week online skills development workshop facilitated by Commonwealth Writers and led by experienced filmmakers from the Caribbean, UK and Canada. The workshops will cover script writing, directing and producing. Each writer/director will receive one to one support from a professional script editor to develop their screenplay, as well as individual Mentors to support the filming process.

On completion of the workshops, the participants will have the opportunity to pitch for a grant to make a short 10-15 minute film.

Our valued local advisors on the project are: Mitzi Allen (Antigua and Barbuda), Shakirah Bourne (Barbados), Juliette McCawley (Trinidad and Tobago) and Kareem Mortimer (The Bahamas).
