Indie film puts spotlight on Trinidad and Tobago

Trinidad's expanding film industry

Thanks to Home Again, the biggest film shot on location in Trinidad to date, Trinidad and Tobago is building an international reputation for great film locales with excellent incentives.

Local film crews helped Canadian producers Jennifer Holness and Sudz Sutherland create the look and texture of Jamaican ghettos while shooting in Trinidad. With a 35 percent rebate offered to productions that spend between US$1 and $3 million in Trinidad and Tobago, the twin-island nation beat out Jamaica as a location for the film.

And now that the government is looking for investment in an animation studio and fostering mentorship and networking opportunities for local entrepreneurial filmmakers, Trinidad and Tobago is building capacity to compete with regional locations like Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic for big-budget movies.
