FilmTT to host Business of Film webinars for Global Entrepreneurship Week

Port of Spain, 05th November 2021: The Trinidad and Tobago Film Company Limited (FilmTT) is taking part in Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) 2021. GEW is hosted by Youth Business Trinidad and Tobago from November 8-14, 2021, under the theme “Reboot, Rethink, Regenerate and Rise.” FilmTT will host two virtual capacity development sessions on November 9th and 11th focused on the Business of Film concepts. The featured speakers will shed light on their entrepreneurial journey and creative processes, as well as provide resources and tools to help their fellow professionals.

This year, FilmTT once again joins GEW to support entrepreneurs creating content for the audio-visual sector in Trinidad and Tobago and the Caribbean region. On November 9th, the “Entrepreneurship in Animation” session will feature Kafi Kareem of Story Play, LLC. Kafi will share her experiences on navigating the local animation sector and provide insight on monetization, distribution and funding of projects.

The “Film, Music Video & Commercial Content” session on November 11th will feature Steven M. Taylor, Producer/Director of music videos and international commercial content. Steven will offer a step-by-step guide on how to direct and share why it is important to apply feature film production techniques to a music video or commercial content. Both sessions will be broadcast on FilmTT’s Facebook page at 12 pm.

Leslie-Ann Wills-Caton, General Manager of FilmTT, stated, “We are thrilled to, once again, take part in this capacity-building initiative to share the tools, experience and knowledge that FilmTT and its stakeholders possess with the wider world. We hope that everyone takes advantage of the content available from the “Entrepreneurship in Animation” and “Film, Music Video & Commercial Content” sessions, as well as any other session offered during the Global Entrepreneurship Week.”

Every November, GEW celebrates and empowers millions of entrepreneurs around the world – especially individuals who face barriers or who have never considered the idea of launching a start-up. Globally, more than 10 million people take part in thousands of activities, competitions and events that inspire them to act and give them the knowledge, experience and connections they need to succeed. A record 180 countries will take part in GEW 2021.
