Port of Spain, 2nd June 2022: The Film & Folklore Festival (FFF) is excited to announce that the festival would once again be a series of live events at Sandy Hill Nature Park and Terrace over the course of the festival days: 24th – 26th June 2022. FFF launched its 4th annual edition with the theme 1962 Strength in Stories on Thursday 17th February 2022. The theme will focus on showcasing Trinidad and Tobago’s different cultures and traditions from the last 60 years; from Independence to today.


The three days have been split into three very exciting events that will have something for everyone. Day one is Flambeaux, a dinner and cultural evening. Paid festival goers get to experience a three-course meal underneath the enchanting pine trees of Sandy Hill Nature Park and Terrace while enjoying live entertainment in the form of music, storytelling and comedy. This event will take place on Friday 24th June from 7PM.


On Saturday 25th June, treat the entire family to an afternoon of family fun with Anansi stories and camping/outdoor activities at Camp Folklore from 1PM. Sit under the trees and enjoy stories of Anansi and other traditional folklore characters. And for the little ones, and even the little ones at heart, there will be outdoor scouting activities such as rope tying, compass navigating, tent pitching and so much more. There will also be bouncy castles!

For the final day, Sunday 26th June, the FFF family will be taking it back to 1962 with vintage style, music, food and fun. Festival goers are encouraged to dress up in their best 1960s wear and become a part of the festival’s walk down the historical memory lane.


“We are beyond excited to bring 1962 to life at this year’s Film & Folklore Festival. We invite everyone to take part in any, if not all, of the exciting events we have planned over this three-day festival. Trinidad and Tobago is 60 years strong, and what better way to celebrate than with the Strength in Our Stories?” – Donelle Wills, Festival Manager.


Through the partnership with Digicel Trinidad and Tobago, everyone will have access to festival content via the PlayGo App, which will host national, regional, and international films. This year’s festival will also be available on Filmocracy, an international film and festival hosting platform. The FFF family is ensuring that the festival can be easily accessible to all who are interested.
