CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: CaribbeanTales Incubator - TIFF 2016

The CaribbeanTales Incubator (CTI) is a year-round development and production hub, for Caribbean and Caribbean Diaspora Producers, that aims to create strong compelling and sustainable content for the global market. The ultimate goal of the CTI is to increase the pool of world-class, indigenous film and television content, so as to build the region's audio visual capacity.

The CTI’s flagship program is theMarket Incubator Program (MIP), a marketing and packaging forum for long-running series projects, that includes 5 weeks of online training, and 1 week of intensive workshops in Toronto.

The MIP offers selected Caribbean and Diaspora producers an opportunity to hone their creative and business skills in the context of an international marketplace environment.

The program culminates in the Big Pitch that takes place at the TIFF Bell Lightbox during the Toronto International Film Festival, bringing together international industry delegates to vote on the best projects.

Winners of the Big Pitch graduate to the 9-month CTI Production Support Program (PSP), that takes projects from pitch to production. 


Deadline: April 30th, 2016.
