FilmTT Inspires Next Generation of Filmmakers
Students at St. Anthony’s College and Dinsley-Trincity Government Primary School were exposed to the exciting world of filmmaking when members of the Trinidad and Tobago Film Company Limited (FilmTT) visited their schools recently.
FilmTT was invited to participate in the schools’ career fair where students were presented with valuable information on career options in the local film industry as well as the various projects and initiatives hosted by FilmTT in which they may get involved to pursue their interest.
Representing FilmTT at Dinsley-Trincity Government Primary School was locally renowned producer/director/actor Che Rodriguez who shared with standard five students the ways in which different subjects can be applied in various careers in the local and international film industry. His advice was very well received by students and teachers alike.
Jamil Agard, acting General Manager of FilmTT, endorsed career fairs such as these stating, “Exposing students of all ages to careers in the film industry will not only increase employment in the industry but also broaden the scope of filmmaking resources available in our country. This competitive advantage will allow us to promote Trinidad and Tobago as the ideal filmmaking destination.”
