France 1902 Directed by George Méliès Production Company Star-Film Running time 8 min Certificate U
Widely considered to be the first ever sci-fi film, A Trip to the Moon is one of cinema’s most celebrated treasures. Georges Méliès was a special effects pioneer who made use of innovative camera trickery and plenty of imagination. The story, a fusion of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne novels, follows a team of astronomers who make an exploratory (and extraordinary) trip to the moon on a rocket ship.
Full of classic imagery, from the chorus girls loading the space gun to the rocket landing in the man in the moon’s eye, this enchanting film exquisitely showcases cinema’s unique ability to depict the fantastical. ... See MoreSee Less

Written and directed by Maria Govan, “Rain” was among the first feature productions to be shot entirely by citizens of the Bahamas, and was an immediate favourite when it screened at the ttff opening night gala in 2009.
When her beloved grandmother dies, young Bahamian girl, Rain, boards a local mail boat from Ragged Island and sets sail for Nassau. She is forced to trade her simple but happy life for the uncertainties of living in the capital with her mother, who abandoned her while a baby. Home becomes a two-room Nassau shack and Rain’s mother proves unfit for parental duties, being a drug addict, a prostitute, and quite possibly HIV positive. Rain seems destined for a bleak future, but for one thing: she is a promising sprinter. Her school’s track teacher, Trinidadian Ms. Adams, becomes coach and mother figure to Rain, who is determined, almost literally, to outrun her fate. Cast includes Renel Naomi Brown, Irma P. Hall, Nicki Micheaux and CCH Pounder.
“Rain” will be available to viewers in the Caribbean, for 48 hours, from midnight on Friday night to 11:59PM on Sunday night. The viewing portal is live at this link: ttfilmfestival.com/watchamovieonus
