Dominican Republic: Foreign filming has brought 152 million dollars to the country.

Marianna Vargas, the new head of the General Directorate of Cinema (DGCINE), revealed to Diario Libre that her administration would continue to work to consolidate the film industry in the Dominican Republic.

Vargas, who succeeded Yvette Marichal, is a lawyer and has been involved in the film industry since 2008.

Commenting on her steps, from the legal field in film and the Dominican Republic’s Export and Investment Center, together with its then director, Eddy Martinez, she says: “At that time, we identified the three pillars for film to develop, which are human capital, infrastructure and a regime of incentives; and that, to this day, is maintained,” she commented.

And she recalls that they explored international scenarios and the benefits that other countries had for local development and attracting investors.
