    CTC Begins National Community Values Film Competition
    Santo Domingo, July 3rd 2017

    With a goal of offering wholesome entertainment and incentivizing young members of society to venture into the world of cinematography, a joint venture between the Dominican Republic’s Vice President and the Community Technological Centers (CTC) has been launched. This venture, the National Community Values Film Competition, aims to spur interested parties to create short films with their mobile phones.

    The project, officially kicked off in the heart of La Nueva Barquita and forty other Community Technological Centers around the Dominican Republic, is backed by the Autonomous University of Santo Domingo’s (UASD) Film Studies program. As part of the program, participants will be trained on the foundations of cinematography in workshops specializing in short film production.

    Winners will be able to participate in Short Film Week, to be held by the Community Technological Centers this coming November. They will also receive prizes in the form of trophies, grants, and others during the film festival directed by GFDD/Funglode.

    Luisa Jorge, director of community management at the Community Technological Centers, said that Vice President Cedeño is interested in bringing film to every community of the Dominican Republic, given that it is a longstanding desire held by many around the country.

    In January 2017 the very first awards ceremony was held during the tenth Global Dominican Film Festival. As a result of both the success of this first competition and Vice President Cedeño’s aforementioned initiative, a new socio-cultural era of values-focused community film has begun.

    Family Films

    La Nueva Barquita’s amphitheater was also the stage for Vice President Cedeño’s and the Community Technological Centers’ cooperation for the project Family Films, which allows those in CTC networks to get together weekly with the objective of reinforcing principles, values, and good family life habits through screenings of films, shorts, and documentaries.

    The initiative is supported by the UASD Film Studies department and businesses Mira Cinema and Pan-American Productions. Among notable attendees from these institutions were Desiree Reyes and Archie López, respectively producer and cinematographer at Pan-American Productions, Julio Melo, director of the UASD Film Studies Department, and Wanda Quiroz, director of Mira Cinema. At the function, these participants and many others enjoyed the film Lotoman.
