The Dominican Republic Global Film Festival 2009 will leave unforgettable experiences and fond memories for many of the people who attend this event. Here we' will collect some of their testimonies.
“Just a few lines to thank you and congratulate you for a job well done; I didn’t want to let any time pass without telling you what a great time we had and what a wonderful experience it was to meet and interact with all the interesting professionals brought together by the film festival. This is what we expressed to our president in a meeting we had last Friday. Thank you for the opportunity and please keep in mind that you can count on me for anything you might need or want.”.
“The truth is that, from the very first day, I had a great time at the Festival due to the excellent selection of this year’s films for Santiago. I really appreciate the work that was done. The volunteers felt great taking part in this event and they will feel even better when they receive their invitation to see the national premiere of New Moon to be held in Santiago.”
"Thanks again for everything, I'm pretty sure I can speak for everyone when I say thank you for such an amazing Festival! The hospitality was outstanding, and I really appreciated being invited. Please let me know if I can assist with anything here in the states. I'd be honored to return."
"I wanted to thank you for you warm hospitality during the DR Global Film Festival this past weekend in Santo Domingo . Sebastian Silva, Claudia Celedon, Andrea Garcia - Huidobro and myself appreciated your warm hospitality. We were thrilled with the response to the film."
“…This is just to thank you so very, very much for an absolutely lovely time in the Dominican Republic. You and your workmates are simply fantastic.
I enjoyed my stay, the various events, the attention to detail, the warmth showed to us throughout. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
My thanks also to our lovely edecans…
To tell you the truth, going in I was worried that the whole enterprise may have some problems. You were so ambitious. But everything went more than perfectly -hey, I even got a picture with the President!!
Thanks again, and I am signing up for next year.
Thank you so much for a wonderful experience at the Dominican Republic
Global Film Festival. You and your staff (plus the volunteers!) did a
great job of making us feel welcome.
I was particularly impressed by President Leonel Fernandez's
involvement in promoting the film industry in DR.
It was a pleasure to participate as a panelist and I look forward to
supporting your efforts in other ways going forward.
“I wanted to say THANK YOU for all your help during the festival.
I am very grateful to you and the foundation for giving me the opportunity to work on something which I love with passion, films, and to make it even better to do it in my country, what a treat! Gracias, mil gracias!
As I told you on the closing night, the festival was amazing. I met a lot of people, and I learned a lot, and I had a lot of fun, too, yeah!!
You guys did a great job, I am being honest. I am dominican and I know how difficult is to work there, you and your group made miracles through those rough times that you had, I know.
I hope this festival stays for ever in DR, and it becomes better and better every year…
I will send you some feedback as I promised, a couple things for next time. But the reality is that the festival is pretty young, it will take some years to be on certain level and you guys are doing a huge effort to bring the best of the best to DR, and that makes me feel so proud and so happy, thank you again!
