In 2016 we introduced our first CINELIT: Latin American and Caribbean Literary Film Festival.
From the beginning, films based on Caribbean literature and culture were an integral part of the NGC Bocas Lit Fest programme. In 2016, we expanded our screening series into a nine-day Latin American and Caribbean Literary Film Festival, CineLit, featuring adaptations of dozens of literary classics from across the hemisphere.
Some of the films had never been seen in T&T before, among them some international film award winners, based on books and about the incredible people who wrote them. All of the films were subtitled in English.
