Sports Commission To Release Short Film Following The Life of a Female Sprinter

Jarrett Forbs, Director of the Sports Commission.

The Turks and Caicos Islands Sports Commission (TCISC) is set to release a short film about a female sprinter titled Ripple Effect.

This film follows the life of Anita Been-Brown who is arduously preparing to compete in the CARIFTA Games while her life at home, paves a dangerous road to destruction.

According to the sports Commission, Ripple Effect is not just a story of track and field. The Sports Commission said the film humanizes the experience of athletes while beaming a spotlight on the dangers gun violence dispels in Caribbean communities.

This film was dependably created by students 14-21 years old in the TCI, who are enrolled in the TCISC’s early careers sports media programme Project I.D.E.A. Media Club. So far the trailer has amassed over 38,000 views on Facebook and Instagram among our islands and is looking to shake things up on the big screen.

This short film will be premiered on Saturday, June 15th, at the Inspiring Change: Transforming Lives Through Sports event. The proceeds of this event will be in aid of the Athlete Development Fund and the Project I.D.E.A. Media Club.

In addition, a mini-documentary on the Police Action League will premiere before the film screening. The event will consist of a cocktail reception, dinner, and entertainment.

The Sports Commission said the sole purpose of this event is to raise funds for these two initiatives, and by purchasing a ticket each contribution helps to push these initiatives forward, making each person a donor.

Each table has seating of up to 10 people of your choice for $2000 and individual tickets are also available at $225. To reserve a table, purchase a ticket, or receive further information, please email Calvina Andrews at
