We speak with Carver Bacchus, Managing Director of Sustain T&T and Founder/Director of the Green Screen Environmental Film Festival. Carver Shares his thoughts on creativity and the challenges faced by NGO's in Trinidad and Tobago. 

It's Official.

After five years, Green Screen becomes an official festival in 2016, collaborating on the development of a Film Festival Season along with the Trinidad + Tobago Film Festival and Animae Caribe, starting with TTFF in September and ending with Green Screen in November, all supported by the FilmTT.

In addition, Green Screen has expanded it's feature 2015 documentary project "A Better Place". The expanded programme, called "Films For A Better Place", was created in 2016 to support the development of short documentary content by local filmmakers through development workshops and small grants. The films created as part of this programme will premiere at Green Screen 2016.

This year Green Screen will offer more screenings, venues, panels, Q&A's and parties than ever before, with international filmmakers and activists visiting for the first time and runs from November 1st to 12th, you can find more info at Please do go out and participate.
