Meeting of ABCD Filmmakers Begins in Dominican Republic

The Second Meeting of Filmmakers from Africa, Brazil, the Caribbean and its Diaspora (ABCD) opens its doors today to discuss, among other topics, areas of cooperation in production and exhibition, and possibilities of film on the Internet, Prensa Latina reports.

The meeting will last until Wednesday and delegates from 26 countries will attend the event.

National cinema and cultural identities in times of media hegemony is another issue at the event, organized by the Office of the Traveling Caribbean Film Festival.

That institution has the support of the Dominican Republic Global Film Festival and the Global Foundation for Democracy and Development, in whose venue the forum will be held.

In 2011, the meeting was attended by representatives from nine African countries and 18 Latin American, North American, and Caribbean countries.

  1. YO NO SE SI ME ESTOY DIRIGIENDO A ALGUIEN O A NADIE EN TERMINOS DE LO QUE VOY A DECIR! LISA PARAVISINI Y COLEGAS: USTEDES NO LES RESPONDEN A LOS CONTRIBUYENTES COMO UN SERVIDOR? TIENEN UNOS REGLAMENTOS DE REDACCION O DE PARTICIPACION. HE ESTADO HASTA LA FECHA HABLANDO EN EL VACIO! PORQUE ESTE ENCUENTRO DE CINEASTAS ES IMPORTANTE
    PARA NOSOTROS LOS DE LAS DIASPORAS CARIBENAS Y LATINOAMERICANAS! HELLO!!! IS THERE ANYBODY ON THE LINE!? I HOPE THERE IS. ELDER PEDRO PEREZ-ORTIZ/ NYC BORICUA
