CineAyiti International Film Festival, Cap-Haitien

Virtual keyboard solidarity alone will not sustain Haiti's recovery. Tangible projects are needed on the ground with medium and long-term focus.

The critics should not forget that the 60-year old Berlin International Film Festival started at a time when Germany was dotted with World War II rubble. The Sundance Film Festival started on a very modest footing.

The theme of the maiden edition of CineAyiti International Film Festival is “Cinema and National Recovery.”

Before the quake of 12 January 2010, Haiti had one film festival (Festival Film Jakmèl) on the Southern Corridor initiated by the respected Ciné Institute. There existed also a young but vibrant home video scene with inputs from the Haitians in the Diaspora (USA, Canada, UK, France).

This "CineAyiti International Film Festival" in Cap - Haitien on the Northern Corridor, seeks not  to only  complement the Southern Corridor event but also support the emergence of a diversified Haitian Audio Visual Industry after the quake of 12 January 2010.

Many film-making countries like the USA, UK, Canada, China, South Korea, Germany, France, South Africa or Nigeria have more than five different annual film festivals each.

Therefore, Haiti having two film festivals - the "Festival Film Jakmèl" on the South in Jacmel and "CineAyiti International Film Festival" on the North of the country in Cap-Haitien is a positive development and the winners will be the Haitian and international creative talents.

By submitting your film, getting your accreditation or becoming a patron ,you contribute towards the sustained concrete recovery of Haiti's motion pictures industry.

Open letter from Paul Haggis in Port au Prince, Haiti

This morning we toured the "street schools" in the slums of Cite Soleil and surrounding areas, the poorest neighborhoods in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere; the schools sponsored by NPH International and Artists for Peace and Justice (APJ). Most were destroyed. The good news was that the quake hit just as school had let out, so nowhere near as many children were killed as we feared. Still, too many. We met many people who had lost children, sisters and brothers. W...
