1Cartagena Film Festival The Cartagena Film Festival or FICCI is the longest running film festival in Latin America. I have to thank my wife Carmen for helping make this happen.
2Very Well Established and Respected Touring the town of Cartagena and learning more about FICCI - I came away very impressed. This organization is very well respected and supportive of great film making
3Initial Screening in Training Room Our screening took place in a somewhat tight and full training room. It was nice to see some younger people in the crowd.
4Outside of the Facility FICCI has extensive facilities and training related to film making. We were booked on the second floor for our screening.

12Warm and Friendly People We found a lot of younger and very friendly people who loved the film and the music of Bill Evans
13Marlon Becerra We did a private screening of the film for Marlon Becerra who is a wealthy dentist in Colombia and a big Bill Evans fan.
14A Final Shot The country of Colombia is wonderful - I think a lot of people shy away from it by mistake. I would encourage anyone to visit and check it out.
