In 2015, through the support of the GEF SGP UNDP, Sustain T&T produced the documentary in five parts, A Better Place, in collaboration with T&T Rocks. The film demonstrated what ordinary people with modest resources can do for themselves and their communities, while highlighting the creative talent of Trinidad and Tobago.

In 2016, the A Better Place concept has been expanded to support and encourage further development of documentary content that tells stories about environmental and sustainability issues with a unique voice. Thus the inaugural programme of Films for A Better Place came about, with the support of the German Embassy – Port of Spain and FilmTT.

“We dream of a country and a world where people focus on creating solutions and cherish knowledge as a means to improve the quality of everyone’s lives.

Trailer of ‘A Better Place’, which tells the inspirational stories of five environmental projects in T&T, by ‘Green Screen – The Environmental Film Series.’ “The programmes, all funded by the Global Environment Fund (GEF) Small Grants Programme, show the commitment and dedication of diverse groups working from where they are to make Trinidad &Tobago a better place.
The film is executive produced by Sustain T&T in collaboration with T&T Rocks.”

 

We will champion the cause of those wanting to use media and creative interventions to achieve their vision of a more balanced approach to how we grow and develop society.

We intend to support films that move audiences to action on issues that matter.

In our inaugural year we are inviting  Trinidad and Tobago-based documentary filmmakers to submit brief concept notes for short documentaries. Submissions can be on any subject related to environmental and sustainability issues.

Five selected filmmakers will take part in a pre-production workshop before entering the production phase. The completed films must be between five and ten minutes in length. Filmmakers must have access to equipment and any and all crew members necessary to execute their concept.

Each of the five accepted film projects will attract a grant of $5000 TTD.

The finished documentaries will premiere and feature at Green Screen.
