    Dominican Republic Featured During 2017 Seattle Latino Film Festival
    Santo Domingo, October 16, 2017

    On October 6th, the Dominican Republic began its leading role in the 2017 edition of the Seattle Latino Film Festival, an event supported by the Dominican Republic Film Commission (DGCINE) and personally by its Director General, Yvette Marichal.

    It has been truly an honor for the Dominican Republic to serve as the featured country for an event which represents the cinema of Ibero-America. The acceptance and receptiveness of the general public and festival-goers has been a similar honor for Dominican filmmaking.

    The 2017 Seattle Latino Film Festival, which ended on Saturday, October 14th, opened with the Dominican Film Todas las Mujeres son Iguales, directed by David Maler. The opening night’s festivities were attended by DGCINE’s Director General Yvette Marichal; actress Nashla Bogaert; Dominican Film Festival in New York Director Armando Guareño; Seattle Mariners second baseman Robinson Canó; founder and honorary president of the Festival Jorge Enrique González; and other personalities.

    As part of the festival’s programming, on Sunday, October 8th a panel discussion titled “Dominican Film Maker” was held. Topics such as the boom in Dominican Filmmaking in recent years as well as the impact of Latin American film around the world were addressed by Yvette Marichal, Nashla Bogaert, and Armando Guareño.

    Another area aimed at highlighting the Festival’s featured country was the “1 Hour of Dominican Shorts,” a space dedicated to screening film shorts such as El Fondillo Maravilloso, by César Rodríguez; In My Mother’s Arms, by Lia Chapman; Tiznao, by Andrés Farías; Lo Que Pudo Haber Sido, by Violeta Lockhart; and Malas Decisiones, by Ronny Canario.

    On Wednesday, October 11th a panel discussion headed by Dominican director Johanné Gómez titled “Latin American Women in Film” was carried out.

    In addition to Todas las Mujeres son Iguales,a number of Dominican feature films were presented during the festival. Among them: Reinbou, by David Maler and Andrés Curbelo; La Familia Reyna, by Tito Rodríguez; Caribbean Fantasy, by Johanné Gómez; Loki 7, by Ernesto Alemany; and Verdad o Reto, by Suzette Reyes.

    Founded in 2009 by Cuban-born and internationally recognized Poet and Film Industry Professional Jorge Enrique González Pacheco, the Seattle Latino Film Festival is a nonprofit organization that presents films of all types from Ibero and Latin America. In addition to its goal of celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month, the Festival aims to promote arts education through film.
