Share post:

It was Bajan night at the CaribbeanTales launch at the Frank Collymore Hall last night.
The sold out crowd was treated to feature film A Handful of Dirt, by Russell Watson, which was preceded by D Justin King’s Causality and Dominion by Sean Michael Field.
All the directors involved in the showcase were congratulated by members of the audience, and other directors involved in the film festival, during a question and answer segment after the showings.
During brief remarks ahead of the screenings, chief executive officer of CaribbeanTales Frances-Anne Solomon noted that despite the hard economic times, the film industry was “exploding” in the Caribbean.
On the downside, Solomon said there was no existing infrastructure to support the creators and make the industry work.
Nightly screenings of the works of the various Caribbean directors in the Diaspora will be held at George Washington House through Sunday.
