St. Lucian artists will be in full regalia when they assume their positions as kings and queens of the stage in a five-night extravaganza at the National Cultural Centre from April 7th to 13th.  The themed nights, all part of the National Arts Festival, will feature various art forms – poetry, film, composition and song, dance and theatre.

On Monday April 7th, the spotlight will shine on St. Lucian film-makers and actors when three film creators will share their work.  Dale Elliot’s 21 Days, a film based on actual events which took place in 1985,  Film Director Bruce “King B” Ferdinand describes “Out A Street 2 Heated”, as a story about life’s twists and turns and about decisions and consequences. Cocoboy and Giraud, will come alive in an onscreen display of animated brilliance when Ted Sandiford’s A.C.I.D. Kreationz presents the popular duo in film, as well as Cephas, a short film highlighting peer-pressure and its repercussions.

Theatrics, spoken word, song and dance will continue through this week with performances from a number of local groups and individuals.

The National Arts Festival was launched in 2005 with a view to evolve the Visual, Literary and Performing Arts in Saint Lucia as both an organizational and a national priority.  

The Cultural Development Foundation which spearheads the activity, purposes to engender widespread ownership of the Festival and inspiration that would spawn continued creativity and celebration of the artistic output of the Saint Lucian people.
