Miami, Florida, USAThird Horizon Caribbean Film Festival

09/28/2017 - 10/01/2017

In a historical moment when the very notion of cultural diversity is being threatened from so many angles, a full appreciation of the Caribbean as perhaps the most culturally diverse region in the world has never been more important.  As the crucible of the modern world, the Caribbean has always been a place where people from the Americas, Africa, Europe and Asia have converged, and if anything, the conversation around diversity that is currently gripping both America and the UK is one that the Caribbean has already been immersed in for centuries.

Third Horizon Caribbean Film Festival aims to celebrate and showcase this diversity by highlighting the most adventurous creatives in film, art and music who are emerging from the region and its sprawling diaspora. We hope you join us for a weekend that explores just how the Caribbean, in all its colorful nuance, is at once a signpost of the present, the past and the future of our ever-expanding world.

The festival was founded by Third Horizon, a Miami-based collective of Caribbean creatives whose first short film, Papa Machete, had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2014 and had its US premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in 2015, before going on to screen at more than 30 film festivals worldwide. It is staged in partnership with the Caribbean Film Academy, a Brooklyn-based not-for-profit organization whose core mission is to support and distribute the work of Caribbean filmmakers.
