In the presentation, the Dominican ambassador, Olivo Rodríguez stressed that “this eighth edition of Dominican cinema is a bet that the country has made in the field of cinema and that has been carried out in Spain uninterruptedly in 2012. This year, the show brings, as always, the new productions that have taken place lately in the Dominican Republic in various genres, also some short films by our artists, including several from the world of cinema who are in Spain and, thus, also be able to share moments of exchange between members of the Dominican industry with the film industry here in Spain.
The Dominican representative also stressed that “the growth experienced by the film industry in the nation since the entry into force of Film Law 108-10 has been exponential. This regulatory agreement has allowed the Dominican Republic to become one of the most attractive points for international co-productions.
