Connecting People Through Film
CaribbeanTales is a registered Canadian charity (no. 87896 4618 RR0001) that creates, markets and distributes educational programs and products intended to promote racial equality in Canada.
Our mandate is to foster and encourage intercultural understanding and citizen participation through the creation and distribution of educational films, videos, theatre as well as new media programs, products and resource materials that reflect the diversity and creativity of Caribbean-Canadian heritage culture.

- Community screenings of “A Winter Tale” targeted to selected audiences, including Black and Caribbean-Canadian communities in major Canadian cities; schools, racialized, and “at risk” students.
- The Literature Alive Project (funded by Canadian Heritage) is a multi facetted multi-media project that celebrates and features three generations of Caribbean Canadian literary achievement, from Austin Clarke to Dbi Young.
