The line-up has been announced for
the trinidad+tobago film festival 2011 (ttff/11), with more films screening
than ever before in the festival's history.

The ttff, sponsored by Flow, is a
celebration of the best films from the Caribbean, the Caribbean Diaspora and
Latin American countries in the Caribbean Basin. This year will see nearly 100
feature-length and short films being screened at the festival, which takes
place from September 21 to October 04.

Among the many anticipated films is

an urban drama and the new feature by Jamaica's Chris Browne, writer and
director of the popular Third World Cop
. Another anticipated film

, the debut
feature by Storm Saulter.

A number of top-totch films from or
about Cuba are also screening at the ttff/11. One is the searing Boleto al
by veteran filmmaker Gerardo Chijona, about a group of young people trying to
navigate the “Special Period” of deprivation in the early 1990s. Another is Sons
of Cuba
a documentary by British director Andrew Lang, that goes inside the elite
Havana Boxing Academy.

Documentaries from Trinidad and
Tobago are also in the line-up. '70: Remembering a Revolution
, directed
by Alex de Verteuil and Elizabeth Topp, tells the story of the Black Power
disturbances of 1970, while Calypso Rose: The Lioness of the Jungle
is a
moving portrait of the pioneering calypsonian, directed by Pascale Obolo.

Other key films screening at the
ttff/11 include film festival-circuit favourite Jean Gentil
