A Letter From

The Festival Director

We are excited to be able to provide an opportunity for storytellers and filmmakers to create content in Sport and Entertainment, two of the key areas of Caribbean life our people are well known for.

Those stories are of extreme value to the identity of our Caribbean family in the region and globally.

The creative talent and their production teams  that will submit their productions in this year’s RealVibez Film Festival 2021 (Caribbean) will place the necessary emphasis on sport and entertainment. 

From documentaries, features, narrations, musicals and animated short films, this year’s RealVibez Film Festival featuring Sport & Entertainment  showcases the dynamism of the Caribbean’s greatest storytellers. 

We know the short films will bring a scintillating mix of artistry from the heart of the Caribbean culture representing music, sports, food and fashion and a host of other stories, guaranteed  to present a unique experience to our audiences that will inspire you. 

We look forward to the entries.

One Love,

Carole

Arts and Culture Festival Director
