About

Cana Dorada is an annual Film Festival that had its first edition in January 16-19, 2020 hosted in Eden Roc Cap Cana, Dominican Republic. The main purpose of the festival is to create a bridge between the Latin entertainment into the global and Hollywood industry.

The festival is a unique opportunity to meet actors, producers, film makers, directors, artists and investors, to create strong networks and new opportunities.
