Many years ago when our ancestors arrived in the Caribbean, they came with their stories. At night, they would tell tales of small but brave characters, cunning larger and ferocious ones. Versions of our younger selves loved the world, even identifying with compere Anansi as he and many others survived against insurmountable odds.
The core mission of the Film and Folklore Festival is to keep these stories alive by celebrating the culture, traditions and beliefs of our ancestors.
