restricted access FeCAViP Manifesto (France, 1990)

The creation of FeCAViP in 1990 signaled the beginning of a new transnational organization addressing the needs of the Caribbean and its diaspora and the concurrent awakening to the existence of a pan-Caribbean cinema movement. This manifesto foregrounds yet again the need for international interdependency in relation to the production, distribution, and exhibition of works by filmmakers in emergent cinema cultures, filmmakers who are all too often marginalized both in the Caribbean and in venues such as international film festivals.
