If anything can be underscored about the recent closure of the III Dominican Republic Global Film Festival, it was the massive response, not just from the public who came to see films at the five venues, but from the international guests.

The presence of one of the distinguished international guests that fills us with pride, considering that he is a person of international recognition, is one who attended the Festival and inauguration night having been invited by FUNGLODE.  Russian dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov honored us with his presence at the National Theater in Santo Domingo by attending the opening film.

Hours prior to this event, he shared a cocktail with a large group of guests gathered at FUNGLODE headquarters. His presence at the cocktail party allowed many people to meet and have their photos taken with this dance legend.

The evening’s guests included young Brazilian dancer Irlan Santos who is featured in the documentary Only When I Dance. Irlan has said that he began dancing precisely after having seen Baryshnikov perform in "Don Quijote." The young Santos was finally able to speak with his idol. This event was one of the many that provided magic to the great date with world film that took place in the Dominican Republic.
