Help Us Raise Funding for the Timehri Film Festival!
The road to the Timehri Film Festival began with the strides Guyanese filmmakers have been making regionally and internationally. Filmmakers like Kojo McPherson, winner of the pitch competition at the 2015 Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival, Gavin Ramoutar, whose thesis film ANTIMAN has been a winner at several international film festivals and Mason Richards whose film, THE SEAWALL was a 2011 Cannes selection.
In an effort to 1. highlight and support Guyanese filmmakers and 2. bring Caribbean films to Guyanese audiences, the Timehri Film Festival was created. Romola Lucas and Justen Blaize, co-founders the Caribbean Film Academy and Alysia S. Christiani, founding editor the Caribbean-American culture blog Rewind and Come Again, have teamed up to create this five-day cultural event.
Now in our second year, the 2017 festival, will showcase a curated list of feature-length films by Guyanese and other Caribbean artists. We are also partnering with Sustain TT to present a day of environmental films made in both Trinidad & Tobago and Guyana. A new element added this year are offsite screenings. We will screen at local schools, prisons, and an Amerindian village in order to bring these stories to audiences who would not otherwise have access.
To make this all of this happen we need your help!
Your donation will be used to help us secure our venue, local advertising, and fund other operational costs. Every dollar donated will go a long way in helping to make the 2nd annual Timehri Film Festival a success.
