Testimonials

It was a real pleasure to be a part of the launch of this wonderful film festival and educational initiative.

I think it was a great success and has laid the foundation for a very empowering event. Your dedication to the environment, to education and to the greater good is to be commended.

Plus the gracious hospitality shown to me and all the guests was most appreciated. I really look forward to working with the entire team again soon on furthering our common goals.

"I think the DR Environmental Film Festival is very positive initiative. Using all means that are available to communicate knowledge and film is very powerful, whether you are telling a story that conveys truth or a documentary film, what this fosters is knowing, and with knowing there is caring. If you don't know you can't care. It's only now that we are beginning to know enough about the natural world and our place in it, that we are beginning to truly care about caring for nature."

II Muestra de Cine Medioambiental Dominicana, 5-9 de Septiembre 2012
The Festival will provide youth and general audiences the opportunity to watch the best and most beautiful, informative and educational environmental international films of the year, to learn about the pressing issues, to appreciate and value the diversity and beauty the country has to offer and, hopefully, inspire greater environmental stewardship. The biodiversity crisis, sustainable production and consumption, water, climate change, urbanism, poverty and the state of fisheries are some of the themes the selected films will address and bring to Dominican audiences, along with the opportunity to meet the producers, directors, researchers, adventurers, and explorers. The Festival will offer ample opportunities for audiences to interact with leading figures in the environmental community and possibly collaborate on national and international
programs that make a difference.

The expected goals of this activity is to offer an opportunity to youth of disadvantaged areas to interact with Marcos, and to get a better understanding for the role model that Marcos represents for Dominicans and the rest of the world, as well as a better understanding of the sea and this protected area of La Caleta.
