Los Angeles Producer Rudy Langlais, is expected to be the keynote speaker at a launch of the Audiovisual Association of Dominica (AAD) on Thursday afternoon.

Key players in Dominica’s audio visual sector are expected come together at the event taking place at the Fort Young Hotel on Thursday evening.

It is geared toward members, related businesses and supporters of Dominica’s growing Audiovisual Industry.

Langlais is of Dominican parentage and is best known for producing the film “The Hurricane” starring Denzel Washington,  “Who Killed Atlanta’s Children” with Gregory Hines, and “Redemption” starring Jamie Foxx. Langlais is currently producing “Rebels”, the story of Bob Marley; and the fantasy‐adventure “Alosha” with Peter Jackson.

He is considering Dominica as the location for a new feature film.

The producer also hopes to discuss with stakeholders what he hopes to give back to Dominica through this project.

It will feature an interactive panel discussion and workshop in which participants will begin to identify and cultivate opportunities for collaboration and partnership in the production, financing and distribution of audiovisual content.

A content showcase highlighting Dominican productions by local producers will also be featured at the cocktail reception.

It is expected that members of the AAD will benefit significantly from the launch event. Recommendations and new opportunities coming out of this high level workshop will help direct the Association’s work program for the year. The launch will also serve as a membership drive.

The mission of the Audiovisual Association of Dominica (AAD), is “to promote and support the growth of professionals and businesses in Dominica’s audiovisual sector.”

    Great news. More Dominicans should take a page from Mr. Langlais’ book. Hope all goes well. I wish the Audiovisual Association of Dominica the very best in it’s endeavours. By the way, does Mr. Langlais’ roots go back to Colihaut? Just curious since there are many Langlais there.
