The Film & Folklore Festival (FFF) will once again be a series of live events at Sandy Hill Nature Park and Terrace, Freeport.
The theme of FFF's fourth annual edition is 1962: Strength in Stories. It will showcase Trinidad and Tobago’s different cultures and traditions from the last 60 years, from Independence to today, said a media release.
The three days of festival from June 24-26 will feature three events with entertainment for everyone. Day one is Flambeaux, a dinner and cultural evening, which offers patrons a three-course meal underneath the enchanting pine trees of Sandy Hill Nature Park and Terrace, while enjoying live entertainment with music, storytelling and comedy. This event will take place on June 24 from 7 pm, the release said.
On June 25 the programme focuses on family fun with with camping and outdoor activities at Camp Folklore along with Anansi and other folklore characters from 1 pm. For younger children there will be outdoor scouting activities such as rope tying, compass navigating, tent pitching and a bouncy castle.
For the final day the FFF family will go back to 1962 with vintage music, food and fun. Festival-goers are encouraged to dress up in their best 1960s wear and become a part of the festival’s walk down memory lane, the release said.
Festival manager Donelle Wills said in the release, “We are beyond excited to bring 1962 to life at this year’s Film & Folklore Festival. We invite everyone to take part in any, if not all, of the exciting events we have planned over this three-day festival. TT is 60 years strong, and what better way to celebrate than with the Strength in Our Stories?”
Through a partnership with Digicel TT, everyone will have access to festival content via the PlayGo App, which will host national, regional, and international films. This year’s festival will also be available on Filmocracy, an international film and festival-hosting platform.
