Watch: Environment takes centre stage at Green Screen Film Festival

The 2018 Green Screen Film Festival once again focused on topical environmental issues as shown through the eyes of the country's up-and-coming filmmakers. 

Winner of the Youth category was Renaldo "Red" Frederick, who won for the first time with his short film 'I Refuse'.

 

Frederick started acting at age 16  and won a scholarship to attend the Trinidad Theatre Workshop.

From there, he completed his BA in Film Production and Theatre Arts at the University of the West Indies then worked for one year as an Apprentice Player at the National Theatre Arts Company of Trinidad and Tobago.

'Red', as he is known by friends, can be seen in television commercials, music videos and short films.

Notable film credits include Girlfriends’ Getaway, Flying the Coup, Pan! Our Modern Odyssey, Unfinished Sentences, and Home Invasion. 

Presently, he is pursuing his MA at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) in London.

Meanwhile, director, editor and first-time film competition contender, Shane Hosein won with 'Soluble' in The Very Short Shorts Mobile Film Competition.

Shane started his career as a filmmaker on the Set of Westwood Park, during season 3 in 2001.

His keen desire to progress in the industry motivated him to move quickly through the ranks, producing work alongside many top Trinibagonian and international industry professionals.

His skills have allowed him to pursue storytelling through film and television productions, documentary and commercial advertising in a way he finds incredibly satisfying and rewarding.
