It’s that time of year again, film festival season in Toronto. This will mark the 15th year for the Caribbean Tales International Film Festival. That’s 15 years of films that represent the culture of the Caribbean islands and Caribbean people – the cultural nuances in comedy, drama, documentaries, short films or animation. Of course things are somewhat different this year due to COVID-19; but the show must go on – online. In light of all that’s taken place this year with the heightened sense and awareness of anti-Black racism, watching films that acknowledge and confirm one’s existence makes for a nice getaway from reality. It’s also a place for other communities to join in, learn and enjoy the cultures of the Caribbean.
The festival runs from Sept.9 -Oct. 2. Click to review show times and purchase tickets.
