Dominican Republic: Large film studio to be built in Puerto Plata

President Luis Abinader headed the signing of an agreement yesterday with actor and producer Vin Diesel and the company Blue Mangos Studios, for the construction of a first-class film studio, with the support of the experience and contacts of the famous character in the film industry.

“The time has come from Bergantín to fulfill our dreams,” said the president, when he announced the news that he defined as transcendental for the entire north coast and the country, highlighting the importance of the film industry to boost the reactivation of the tourism industry.

Film tourism has grown and has become an essential strategy for the promotion of the tourist destinations where the movies are filmed because many travelers want to visit the place they saw in the film, said the president who was accompanied by his wife, Raquel Arbaje; the ministers of Tourism, David Collado, and the Administrative of the presidency, Jose Paliza; the director of DGCINE, Mariana Vargas and the wife of Vin Diesel, Paloma Jimenez Diesel, and local and national officials. The agreement was signed on the beach, in the unique setting of Bergantin, just a few minutes from Playa Dorada.
