FILM-ED Cinema at the Caribbean Fashion & Arts Feature Festival
REconnecteD Production's FILM-ed Cinema platform sets out to showcase African fashion films 100% created by African creatives living and working on the continent today. With free submissions, we are looking to welcome work by as many film makers as possible to FILM-ed whose work represent Africa in how we interpret our rich history, cross-cultural present and potential of our future.

This October, we are honored to again be able to take the next step in realizing our goal with the platform as official Program Partners at the 3rd annual Caribbean Fashion & Arts Feature Festival with a showcase exclusively for African fashion films.

CFAFF is a non-profit organization operating in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago with the mission to merge fashion, film and art through public film screenings, lectures, exhibitions, fashion shows, concerts and festivals for the general public. With a strong interest in youth development, the organization is also mandated to host workshops, mentorship initiatives, educational sessions and seminars related to film-making, fashion and arts for young people aged 15-25, primarily in East Trinidad, interested in careers in the creative sector. The festival showcases films from around the world and partner with other foreign festivals to curate the best possible Official Selection for the community.
