11 Jul On Our Way to Animae Caribe ’16
In commemoration of our 15th Anniversary of Animae Caribe Festival, we are celebrating with a year of events, exhibitions and screenings. Founder and Creative Director Camille Selvon Abrahams was asked by the Inter-American Development Bank in Washington to collect and curate an exhibition of Caribbean Animations. The twenty hand selected shorts will be exhibited at the IDB Head Office Conference Centre in Washington DC from 14th of April till July of this year. This will include screening works from animators like Wendell Mc Shine and Ansar Sattar from Trinidad and Tobago, Corretta Singer from Jamaica, Isis Chaviano Real of Cuba, Ted Sandiford from St Lucia among others. Gaining support from regional institutions like CARICOM, Caribbean Development Bank and Carib-Export in Barbados, this year’s festival will be a week of international guests, animated boot camp, and screenings along with animation and gaming professionals from the Caribbean Diaspora who are making waves in companies like Disney, Pixar, EA Games etc. A year for celebrating our Caribbean brothers and sisters, flying the regional flag in the international animation industry. The 2016 Edition has a special focus on Tobago with a new concept of making the last two days of the festival an eco-friendly experience. With screening and exhibitions in communities like Castara and Palatuvieur, which can gain revenue and positive global visibility from the international visitors and guests attending while also exposing their residents to animation and digital media.
So come celebrate this momentous occasion with us, see animations from around the world, experience Caribbean night life and be part of this Caribbean animated party under the sun. See you there.
