Diplomats will promote Costa Rican films

The foreign ministry has agreed to promote Costa Rican films and audiovisual products in five countries as part of a pilot project.

The countries are Holland, Spain, México, Argentina and Italy.

The agreement by the Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores y Culto was with the  Centro Costarricense de Producción Cinematográfica.

The foreign ministry said that diplomats in foreign countries would seek to have the Costa Rican products entered into the various movie festivals and similar events.

Not only will the project help movie producers here, but it will give examples of Costa Rican culture to the rest of the world, said the ministry in a news release.

The ministry also will seek foreign sources of financing, said the ministry.

Costa Rica produced 10 films last year, said Fernando Rodríguez, director general of the Centro Costarricense de Producción Cinematográfica.
