Show Notes

In this episode we explore the Caribbean film industry and the challenges Caribbean filmmakers face in reaching their audience.

We chatted with Jamaican-born, Rachel Osbourne, who is dedicated to helping Caribbean filmmakers reach their audience through her media platform JulieMango.TV.

According to Rachel, the major issue the Caribbean film industry faces is not a lack of good films, but a poor distribution and marketing system for them. We also discussed the idea that the Caribbean audience is generally unaware of the availability of films from the region, which results in low viewership and the belief that the audience is not interested in Caribbean content.
