Julia Solomonoff will be the lead facilitator for the RBC Focus: Filmmakers’ Immersion, to be held at the Trinidad+Tobago Film Festival (ttff) 2013.

Solomonoff is the writer and director of The Last Summer Of La Boyita, co-produced by Pedro Almodóvar’s El Deseo and winner of more than 20 international awards.

Her producer credits include Historias Que Existem Quando Lembradas and Everybody Has A Plan [pictured].

Now in its third year RBC Focus: Filmmakers’ Immersion is an development programme for 10 emerging filmmakers from the Caribbean and the diaspora.

Each filmmaker brings a concept for a feature from which they will be expected to develop a detailed treatment. This year, the spotlight is on narrative filmmaking.

At the end of Focus the top five participants will be selected and will pitch to a jury at a public event during the festival. The winner will receive a TTD $20,000, roughly equivalent to $3,060.

The eight ttff runs from Sept 17-Oct 1 and Focus runs from Sept 24-27.
