December 29th, 2011: Registering as a Producer with DGCINE

I had an exceptionally pleasant experience today meeting with Claudia Barinas, Manager of Sirecine (division of DGCINE) in Santo Domingo regarding the Registration Process as a Film Producer. Claudia spoke perfect English and was very helpful and welcoming to me despite my many questions. She promised to have the registration completed within the next 10 days. This is the first step in getting our permits not only for permission to shoot a film in this country, but also to qualify for the tax incentives of the New Film Law in the DR. We are very excited to see such wonderful support from the DGCINE office. Thank you, Claudia, Lorelay and Sr. Perez.
