IN-SCHOOL PILOT PROGRAM 2009

DSC_3108 On September 12th, 2009 - the ORF, in collaboration with our co-sponsor the Global Foundation for Democracy & Development (FUNGLODE), was proud to initiate the launch of the In-School Pilot Program at the Mauricio Baez Cultural Center which services the neighborhood of Villa Juana in the Dominican Republic.

The goal of the In-School Program is to teach the fundamentals of production to students who otherwise would not have the resources or equipment to find their voice, to enhance concepts such as critical thinking and writing, and to develop a passion for filmmaking at an early age that can later be cultivated into a strong workforce for the Dominican film industry.
