The Mart will include presentations on international appeal and visibility of local films, co-productions, strategies for marketing films in different territories, distribution and the role of sales agents.

All applications must be for feature film projects in development or pre-production to be made in the Caribbean. Either the producer or the director must be a Caribbean citizen or resident from the following territories: the English-speaking Caribbean, the Netherlands Antilles, and Haiti .

All submissions for the Caribbean Film Mart must be made to submit@ttfilmfestival.com no later than 24 August 2016.
