The 2nd Annual Windrush Caribbean Film Festival (WCFF) will be running until August 29 on CT-TV. www.caribbeantales-tv.com.

The digital streaming platform provides access to African & Caribbean heritage films & TV programs making it the perfect host for WCFF 2021. WCFF is an annual event produced by a nationwide community of business and creative arts organizations and leaders led by CaribbeanTales UK. The goal of WCFF is to educate audiences on the contributions of the Windrush generation and their impact, through discussions & screenings in cinemas, schools & community centers across the country.

“Carnival For The People” is the theme for WCFF 2021.

This year’s festival brings a packed line up of drama, action and LGBTQQIP2SAA focused films. WCFF’s exciting program also includes workshops and insightful behind the lens conversations with the filmmakers.

June 22 the Festival will open with Carnival ‘Ah Weh Ting, produced by Optiks Hamilton. Audiences will be introduced to Peace and Love, part of the Windrush Generation who participated in all including the first London carnival in 1964. Opening night will also include, Carnival and Social Justice, a short film by Kingsway Project. Carnivals are an expression of freedom that attract tourists from around the world to hosting cities. The celebrations are vibrant & colorful with parades, music & food, but have a much deeper importance. Carnivals have an important social, political, and cultural role in our society. WCFF celebrates that role.

Patrons are encouraged to get hold of their Festival Pass ahead of the Opening Night. This will enable the holder to access on demand the complete WCFF 2021 program https://windrushfilmfestival.com/ throughout the festival, which runs from 23 July – 29 August 2021 at their convenience. Patrons can also join live events and watch scheduled screenings with other festival goers.
