Based in Miami, Third Horizon celebrates cinema from the Caribbean, its Diaspora, and other spaces of the Global South, including through the annual Third Horizon Film Festival (THFF).

We are pleased to collaborate with Third Horizon on Saturday, May 13, at the Broad Theater, to present a program of films by filmmakers from the Caribbean and its diaspora, all of them THFF alumni.

The Third Horizon x NOFF program comprises a block of shorts followed by the feature-length fiction film Freda, directed by Gessica Généus. We are honored that Gessica will be present for the screening.
