The Global Film Festival is celebrating its thirteenth edition with a long list of achievements and protagonists. International and Dominican artists who have left their mark here as they passed through Santo Domingo and the other cities where the Festival was held are the best evidence of the quality that has been achieved at this film event, organized by the Fundación Global Democracia y Desarrollo (FUNGLODE).

We are offering this twelve cultural festival under a new modality: we are inviting all of you who view yourselves as lovers of the seventh art to join us at this event, created by FUNGLODE with hard work and dedication for the past eleven years, and to make this initiative your own.
Once again, the Dominican Republic dresses up to celebrate the 13th edition of the Global Film Festival. Since its first edition, the FCG aims to strengthen the film industry in the Dominican Republic by establishing itself as a unique meeting point for filmmakers, the public and the international film industry.
Once again we are in this Festival of cinema for the Dominican Republic and as director of the Global Film Festival I must point out that I feel satisfied for the present, for the reach that this year have reached the Dominican filmmakers who have evolved exponentially with more stories authentic, own and with more solid stories.
Welcome to the Dominican Republic to all the special guests who are going to share these days at the Global Film Festival. I hope that in addition to recognizing the beauties of this country and the hospitality of its people, you can recognize that the cinema in the Dominican Republic is an industry of the future, in which we can invest, the incentives of the law allow, surely some who visit us have already benefited from that incentive, make use of them, not only from the perspective of the economic issue but also by the amount of talent and resources that the Dominican Republic has to offer.
