Good afternoon CaribbeanTales Supporters!
CCH Pounder here – many of you know me from my most recent role as Dr. Loretta Wade on NCIS: New Orleans. However, I have a long history of acting in plays and films, as well as in television movies and miniseries. My heart belongs to the Arts and to those creative processes that bring the world together through emotions and storytelling.
Recently, I was in Toronto for the 14th Annual CaribbeanTales International Film Festival (CTFF) and I was a judge at the CTFF Incubator Program’s Big Pitch Breakfast that was held during the Toronto International Film Festival. What a wonderful experience! Eighteen aspiring producers from all over the Caribbean and African Diaspora pitched their stories for a chance to win $10,000. It was tough to pick a winner. There is so much talent in the Caribbean community that needs to be nurtured and supported.
