Dominican Republic’s flag waves high at Cannes
CANNES, France.- Dominican Republic’s flag waves high at its Cannes Film Festival pavilion, where it promotes the country as an international film destination and where contacts and ties with world-renown producers have been forged.
Presidency Film commissioner Ellis Perez said the impact on many producers unaware of the country’s tax breaks was good, as well as the locations and conditions available for productions. “We’re already a reality, the country expects good results in terms of film investment and has outmatched many other platforms of sister nations.”
Speaking in the Dominican stand at the Festival’s convention center, the official thanked Culture minister Jose Antonio Rodriguez for supporting the activities in Cannes.
Perez added that more than 30 filmmakers and several European and U.S. journalists specialized in film have confirmed they’ll attend a press conference in the Dominican stand at 4pm local time.
