CaribbeanTales Worldwide Distribution was established in Barbados in 2010, and founded by internationally accomplished Trinidadian/Canadian/British film producer Frances-Anne Solomon. It was founded in order to monetize indigenous content created with the support of programs offered through the CaribbeanTales charity. With a library of over 180 films and series, CTWD specialises in Caribbean-themed content and content from the Caribbean Diaspora (including Canada, the United States, Europe, Africa and India). CaribbeanTales Worldwide Distribution belongs to the CaribbeanTales Media Group based in Barbados and Toronto, Canada. In addition to CTWD, the group includes CaribbeanTales Inc. (a registered Canadian Charity); the CaribbeanTales International Film Festival, an annual event that takes place in Toronto in September; the CaribbeanTales Incubator Program, that trains filmmakers in the development of viable content for the international marketplace; CaribbeanTalesFlix, our production arm; and CaribbeanTales-TV, a video on demand platform.
