ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA MOTION PICTURE ASSOCIATION FORMED
Tuesday 26th January 2010

Filmmaker Howard Allen chairs the recently formed non-profit company and Dr. Alvin Edwards is its vice-chairman. 
The organisation of independent filmmakers and producers joins other regional counterparts to ensure the development of the film industry in the OECS.

Allen, who is currently the interim co-chair of the regional body, the Caribbean Audio/Visual Network (CAN), which represents 20 countries, says film-making in the Antigua and Barbuda and the rest of the region shows a lot of potential which won’t be realised unless film-makers come together. As part of its mandate the local association will access training for its members, promote its work at regional and international film festivals, seek local, regional and international sources of funding, while working along with the Caribbean Audio/Visual Network in establishing a distribution network. 

The association also plans to lobby the government for the establishment of a film commission, which can be a source of revenue for Antigua and Barbuda in the development of a film industry. Other executive members of the association include Nigel Trellis of Tropical Films Antigua, who is the treasurer and Renee Phillips of Wadadli Pictures, who is the secretary.
