CineLit

Literature brought to life on screen though our Latin American and Caribbean Literary Film Festival. All non-English films are shown with English subtitles.

A festival within a festival – because the best films are from books!

This is the third CineLit: The Latin American and Caribbean Literary Film Festival, now an integral part of the NGC Bocas Lit Fest.

Again this year, CineLit celebrates the remarkably rich heritage of both literature and film from Spanish-speaking America, and showcases groundbreaking work by Anglophone filmmakers.

From Monday 16 April to Sunday 29 April, you can enjoy a programme of feature films and documentaries, including adaptations of beloved literary classics. Amongst them are award-winning films, and most of them are making their T&T debut. This year we have added a full programme of animated films for children.

The NGC Bocas Lit Fest, in partnership with the University of the West Indies (UWI) and the embassies of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Spain and Venezuela, was proud to host the 2018 CineLit.

All screenings are free and open to the public!
