FIRST LOOK FRIDAY: we’re on ER! TVJ, tonight…WHAT IS NEW CARIBBEAN CINEMA?

Phhewww! Finally! Cineworld, we have been working around the clock this week trying to get some press out there to let you all know that we are as serious as my surname when it comes to film-making. FINALLY, our much anticipated little featurette is going to air tonight, on TVJ, thanks to Anthony Miller and his wonderful Entertainment Report, which tonight will be co-hosted by the diva herself, Tami Chynn. BUT, it wouldn’t be FIRST LOOK Friday if we didnt give our web cineistas a sneak peek of tonight’s show, see it first, right here, right now, and catch the entire thing, with clips from the films and interviews with the directors, tonight on TVJ’s Entertainment Report. Blessings!

    I laud the work the team has embarked on. Support the comments from Ras Tingle. Unity is indeed strength. This is a novel idea for all the creative talent coming together working, one project at a time. This is beneficial since financial support sometimes can be a challenge. I wish the team a lot of success. I almost feel envious:-) I was wondering what happened to Flashpoint this year.

    • Hi Cynthia,

      Thanks so much for your comment and support. Just want you to know though, that this series/project is separate from Flashpoint, there is no connection between New Caribbean Cinema and that festival. Just so you know, NCC will be screening all of the films as a feature film when they are all done but keep checking our website as we do intend to do stand alone screenings as well, starting at Calabash this year, with Missed…hope to see you there …

    Congrats again, good work.

    I came across this article from the Tourism Action Newsletter. Just sharing.

    Havana to Host Film Festival on Haiti
    Friday, 04 June 2010 00:00
    A special film program on Haiti will take place from June 10ththrough the 17th at Havana’s Infanta Movie Theater, as part of the travelling festival of Caribbean cinema. The program will begin with the cartoon Ame noire, from Canada-Haiti, shot in 2000 and directed by Martine Chartrand, according to the announcement by the Cuban Film Institute. Also scheduled is the Cuban documentary Jacques Roumain: The Passion of a Country, by Arnold Antonin, which focuses on the history and culture of Haiti, the land of writer Jacques Roumain, the life and work of whom is its central theme. Haiti trembles, produced in 2010 and directed by Claude Mancuso, presents images and details on the events of February 12, 2010, in Haiti, when the earthquake that devastated the fraternal country took place. Haiti Cherie, a film directed by Claudio Del Punta, is set on the groups of humble houses built next to sugar cane fields in the Dominican Republic. It reflects the life of sugar cane cutters, most of them immigrants coming from Haiti.

    One Love
