    Dominican Republic Global Film Festival Accredited as the First Caribbean Festival Within the FIAPF Community
    Cannes, May 25, 2017

    The Dominican Republic Global Film Festival (FCGD, for its acronym in Spanish) received Monday the accreditation of the International Federation of Film Producers Associations (FIAPF) as “COMPETITIVE FEATURE FILM FESTIVAL specialized in First Films”, by the managing director Benoit Ginisty and Adrien Majourel, festival manager of the international organization.

    The decision, which was decided unanimously during the FIAPF General Assembly held on May 20 in Cannes, includes the FCGD among the 47 member festivals accredited by the organization. The accreditation process concluded that the festival meets all of the standards and criteria as defined by the community of cinematographic producers associations around the world and acknowledges the work that has been accomplished by the Festival's team to create a quality film event

    Omar de la Cruz, director of the Dominican Republic Global Film Festival, expressed his enthusiasm because of the endorsement of the FIAPF, "this is a goal that was drawn up and consolidated during the tenth edition. This is an important acknowledgment to the Dominican Republic, the volunteers who work tirelessly to carry out each edition, the national film industry and the Fundación Global Democracia y Desarrollo (Funglode)."

    De la Cruz stressed that with this decision the FCGD becomes the first Caribbean festival with FIAPF accreditation and the third in Latin America alongside the International Film Festival of Mar de Plata and the International Film Festival of Cartagena de Indias. "It is an honor and a privilege that demonstrates the quality of the work and how the festival has developed in the Dominican Republic and worldwide." The decision was unanimous and it was extraordinary to know that Adrien Majourel's on-site evaluation during the last edition encouraged this news.”

    According to FIAPF President, Mr Luis Alberto Scalella, "Since the creation of the Dominican National law on the Promotion of the Film Industry implemented by President Fernandez in 2010, the Dominican Republic has accomplished a fantastic work to promote the film industry and to attract foreign productions. The Dominican Republic Global Film Festival is a key part of this strategy and, with this decision, FIAPF recognizes the work that has been accomplished by the management team and supports the ambition of the Festival to become pivotal in the Caribbean region." Luis Alberto Scalella added: "This accreditation, which acts as a seal of quality, will give new responsibilities to the Festival while providing it with international opportunities."

    Dr. Leonel Fernández, former President of the Dominican Republic and President of Funglode, expressed his satisfaction with this new accreditation, and conveyed the enthusiasm of the Foundation for the incorporation of the festival to this organization, reiterating the desire to be an accredited member and to work closely with FIAPF through the Dominican Republic Global Film Festival.

    Meanwhile, Yvette Marichal, director of the Dominican Republic’s General Directorate of Film, commented that as a country, the Dominican Republic is proud to receive this exclusive accreditation from FIAPF. "Being the only Caribbean festival that has received this seal of excellence is of extreme importance to continue the efforts that have been developing over the years from FCGD and the film industry of our nation.

    The FIAPF, with headquarters in Bern, Switzerland and established in 1933, brings together 38 associations of film producers from 31 countries and aims to defend the creative, legal and regulatory interests of the Film Production sector throughout the world. In addition, it has an active role in the world’s cinematographic festivals as a regulator of international film festivals.
