BRIDGETOWN, Barbados – Bridgetown in all of its splendour as a UNESCO World Heritage Site has been featured in a film entitled Cities of the Caribbean.

The 70-minute documentary was produced by accomplished regional documentary maker, Patrick Baucelin, and features 30 capital cities in the region, including Barbados.

The Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO) will host a showing of the film for secondary school students at 11a.m. on Monday and for tourism industry partners at 2 p.m. the same day. Both showings will be in the Baobab Tower in Warrens, St. Michael. Admission for this event is free, however, limited invitations are available on a first-come-first-served basis.

This initiative forms part of the CTO’s annual Caribbean Tourism Month celebrations, a regional programme aimed at increasing awareness of the importance of the tourism sector among all Caribbean citizens.

By combining the cultural industries with tourism, Patrick created a product that adds value to our tourism experience for our visitors and at the same time educates our citizens about the beauty of our regional product.

Throughout Caribbean Tourism Month Baucelin will premiere the documentary in various CTO member countries. The Barbados-based Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC) will premiere the film on its cable channel, Carib Vision, on November 29 at 5 p.m.. (PR)
