We are pleased to announce the 2nd annual running of the Cacique Film Screenings, to be held in Santa Domingo, Dominican Republic. We are coming back to the place of Caciques inception!

Based on the exciting Cacique events we held in Vienna, Austria and Amsterdam, the Netherlands in 2019, we are upgrading the Cacique event to the beautiful Caribbean beaches of the Dominican Republic.

Please do not submit unless you take your craft seriously, for we are not a “laurel friendly” festival. We are as real as it gets and expects the same from all filmmakers that submit to us for consideration.

We look forward to February 1st, 2020, for the event and all the quality films we receive!

Thank You and God Bless.

    Many thanks to the Cacique Film Fetival for a terrific screening in Vienna. What an honor to receive the Best Music Video Award. Kudos on the creativity of your "global roaming film festival" concept!

    I received a message that I am selected (for Barahona- April 12th-14th, 2019), but on the web and social media pages there is no mention of it.

    Response from festival:

    Hi Pedro..

    As you know --and... because you follow all of our social media pages we rearranged the Barahona event due to security reasoning and extended the series in Vienna and Amsterdam May 27th (which is on the website- www.caciquefilmfestival.com ) . Vienna was grand -- you have liked the photos of the event via our social media pages as well ... But you are entitled to review or comment as you like (fairly or unfairly). To be more frank-- the reaction has been phenomenal and we do hope you can attend with a positive attitude.. (just as you like or mention on the Facebook page). Your unfair review is duly noted and I (James E Lane) will personally forward your review to the organizers in Amsterdam, St. Petersburg, Russia, Bankok and Tralee, Ireland. Thanks for the indie support. -- Best, James

    Hello Johnny..... I think you should check your sources again. The first series of screenings (festival series) was on March 29th, 2019 in Vienna, Austria.. Brilliant night and we are sorry you were not in attendance... Please follow the applicable social media pages of the festival for both verification of existence and of course the results! (Both will have the trophies and announcements of the winners).
