CaribbeanTales 2011 Toronto Film Showcase, Sept. 7-17

The CaribbeanTales Film Festival Group kicks off its 2011 Toronto Film Showcase tonight at the Harbourfront Centre.

Tonight's "Fete" includes a reception under the Patronage of His Excellency The High Commissioner for the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago Phillip Buxo, and is sponsored by the International Development Research Center. 

This year CaribbeanTales honours TIFF Co-Director Cameron Bailey. British-born Bailey's roots are from Barbados.

Another special guest in attendance will be Calypso Rose, aka McArta Linda Lewis, the undisputed Queen of Kaiso and the "Mother of Calypso." She will be on hand to present Calypso Rose: The Lioness of the Jungle, a documentary about her life and work. She will also participate in a question-and-answer session after the screening.

The CaribbeanTales 2011 Toronto Film Showcase continues at Harbourfront until September 17.
