Third horizon film festival
For centuries, the Caribbean has been a place where people from the Americas, Africa, Europe and Asia have converged, and its stories are far richer and more nuanced than the tourist brochures would have you believe. As film production becomes less prohibitive and more democratic, a new generation of Caribbean filmmakers are seizing the moment to bring these stories to the screen. And with the current drive for diversity in film, the time has never been more ripe to share these stories with the world. Third Horizon Film Festival aims to celebrate and empower the filmmakers leading this charge and promote films which tell the stories of the region, its people and their diaspora.
Third Horizon Film Festival was founded in 2014 when Third Horizon was one of the winners of the Knight Arts Challenge. The inaugural edition of the festival was staged in 2016 in partnership with Caribbean Film Academy, a Brooklyn-based not-for-profit organization whose core mission is to support and distribute the work of Caribbean filmmakers.
Following the festival’s 2018 edition, Third Horizon has taken its programming on the road. In March 2019, Third Horizon co-presented the Caribbean Film Series festival at Brooklyn Academy of Music, soon followed by the Timehri Film Festival in Guyana. In March 2019, the collective staged the showcase Third Horizon in Los Angeles at USC School of Cinematic Arts.
Third Horizon Film Festival returns to Miami Feb 6 to 9, 2020. For more information, please visit thirdhorizonfilmfestival.com
