The University of the West Indies (UWI) is partnering with Animae Caribe to present the fifth Animae Caribe Animation, Film and New Media Festival from tomorrow to Saturday, at the Institute of Critical Thinking, UWI, St Augustine Campus.

Animae Caribe, which was founded by Trinidadian animator and UWI lecturer Camille Selvon Abrahams, gives recognition to Caribbean artists and film makers as well as provides young Caribbean persons with a platform for the sharing of Caribbean aesthetics through film, animation and new-media.

The Festival provides a mixture of feature presentations, workshops and learning opportunities, screenings of animations from Animae Caribe through the years as well as international pieces, and a gala award ceremony. Awards presented at the Festival are given under the following categories—Most Outstanding Animation, Most Promising Newcomer, Most Successful Commercial Animation and Most Successful Student Animation.

This year, Animae Caribe continues to network with top players in the fields of animation, film and new media to deliver yet another rich and informative programme.

This year’s programme includes a Maya 3D Workshop by Dotti Colvin of Escape Studios, UK; an Animating with Flash Workshop by Tony Grillo of Flinch Studios, Miami; and a Mask movement and music workshop by Darren Walsh of Passion Pictures, UK.

The Animae Caribe Animation, Film and New Media Festival is aimed at developing the film and new media industries in T&T and providing a global stage for animators and filmmakers of the region.

The festival is free of charge and open to the public.
