(released 10/19/2023)

NYC Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) is a proud sponsor of the Dominican Film Festival New York City. MOME shared the good news that the 12th annual festival will take place November 2-9 in-person and online.

The festival was founded by Armando Guareno in 2012 to promote Dominican cinema and filmmakers. From the festival's mission statement: "The festival's main objective is to inform New York City audiences about Dominican cinema and its relation to the history, politics and social life of the country through an aesthetic approach."

The opening night film EL BRUJO will screen on Thursday, November 2 at the United Palace located at 4140 Broadway in Washington Heights. The 6pm screening will include a Q & A with director Archie Lopez, producer Desiree Reyes, and actors Raymond Pozo and Miguel Cespedes. The synopsis of EL BRUJO reads: "Mon" (Raymond Pozo) feels persecuted after starring in a confusing incident in Santo Domingo and travels to the countryside where his cousin "Primo" (Miguel C├ęspedes) lives. Primo is taking advantage of his son "Vladi's" (Jayden Marine) vacation to teach him how to be a good Dominican and a successful baseball player."
