Welcome the next wave of Jamaican independent film-making — the film short.

Fitting their artistic and creative sensibilities into the medium of film shorts, six of The Rock's directors — collaborating under the New Caribbean Cinema banner — channelled their distinct storytelling perspectives into the film anthology, Ring Di Alarm! which will debut on Wednesday, August 13 at The Carib cinema for a one-night-only screening.

We issued the call last Monday for a confab with directors Michelle Serieux, Joel Burke, Nile Saulter, Storm Saulter, Michael Tingling and Kyle Chin (joined by actors Patasha McLean, Racquel Jones, Chris Hutchinson and Ricardo Orgill) at the iconic Cross Roads theatre to talk about the film project which sees them tackling such juicy subject matters as revenge, politics, promiscuity and redemption in vignettes that run between five and 20 minutes. Theirs was forging a new frontier in the industry, retaining one's creative voice while working as a collective. SO sounds the alarm.
