RBC Royal Bank proud to sponsor inaugural Turks and Caicos International Film Festival

#Providenciales, July 24, 2019 – Turks and Caicos – RBC Royal Bank is proud to be a lead sponsor of the inaugural Turks and Caicos International Film Festival (TCIFF), taking place from November 15 to 17.

One of the pillars of the TCIFF is its outreach programmes designed to support students in TCI by connecting them with workshops, tutorials, and networking opportunities with filmmakers and conservationists.  A key objective of the TCIFF is to shine a light on environmental issues facing the Caribbean region, and the world, in hopes of bringing about change and responsible environmental stewardship.

Giving students these opportunities is a principal element of RBC’s flagship youth education programme, RBC Future Launch – a programme that works with local stakeholders in Canada, the United States, and the Caribbean to prepare our youth for the new jobs of tomorrow and the future world of work.
