Caribbean Cinematic Festival to Highlight Richness of Caribbean Culture
This year’s Caribbean Cinematic Festival will take place Thursday, Feb. 23, through Sunday, Feb. 26, at the Community Folk Art Center, 805 E. Genesee Street, Syracuse. The festival will highlight the richness of Caribbean culture through a series of events, including film screenings, dance and spoken word performances, local Caribbean cuisine and a series of workshops and post film discussions.
The festival is an opportunity for Spanish, English and French speaking West Indians to meet and find common ground in a community that has residential divisions with Blacks living on the South Side and Latinos on the West Side.
This project is both an effort to showcase the beauty of Caribbean culture and foster community togetherness. Organizers would like to create an inviting space for Caribbean immigrants and non-Caribbeans to appreciate a culture that is not often highlighted within the Central New York community.
