The Edinburgh Short Film Festival's favourite Caribbean Shorts!

Following our collaboration with the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival, we are delighted to present a programme of Caribbean short films for the Edinburgh University African Caribbean Society!

Winner of the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival’s best short film award in 2013 and the Short Film Award Winner at the 2013 Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival.
