In Their Own Words


  • Ossela Chery, <em>Class of 2013</em>

    As a native of Jacmel, I was thrilled to know that finally there was a film
school, not just in Haiti, but right here in my town. I, immediately applied
 and was overwhelmed with joy when I was granted admission. Under the direction of my professors I directed two short films in my first year, a thesis film, a commercial and a music video. Three years ago I wouldn’t have imagined myself accomplishing all this, so I am grateful for this brilliant institution and for all the Ciné Institute supporters who have made my education possible. Ciné Institute has proven that it cares about the future of young Haitians by providing us with free education of an international standard.
