The Dominica Film Office is pleased to announce an increase in film productions on island this April. This coincides with the relaxation of entry requirement protocols to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Travelers are no longer required to complete the online health questionnaire prior to arrival, while vaccinated travelers are no longer required to present proof of a negative PCR or antigen test taken 72 hours prior to arrival.
On April 21, a 20+ strong crew from the Seabourn Odyssey arrived in Dominica to produce a promotional video on visiting the destination. The video will showcase cruise passengers visiting natural sites and attractions in Dominica to include the Kalinago Barana Aute, Indian River, Spanny Falls, Emerald Pool and Trafalgar Falls. It will be used to promote the destination aboard several of Holland America Cruise Line’s vessels.
A small crew from the US was also welcomed on island for seven days at the end of April to produce a documentary on marine wildlife. This is expected to be aired on a major US television network. Visiting film crews to the island contribute to boosting the island’s foreign exchange earnings while increasing the visitor arrival figures.
