    I wouldn't call this a "Festival". Don't know what it is really or what it's purpose is.

    Film festivals are a great way to catch some of the world's best films that do not have the marketing muscle to make it to your neighbourhood cinema. I am delighted to see Frame by Sound showcasing such films from far and near in Dominican Republic and to be part of this effort in a modest way. I am sure in the long run the festival will foster greater literacy about cinematic art and promote local film making talent in the region.
