Yesterday, the United States Consul General Margaret D. Hawthorne hosted a gathering for members and supporters of the Curacao Film Institute, which presented its plans for the development of the Curacao film and television industry in the presence of the Dutch Minister of Kingdom Relations, His Excellency Ronald Plasterk and Economic Development Minister, His Excellency Eugene Rhuggenaath.

The presentation focused on strengthening film industry ties between the U.S., Curacao, and the Netherlands. The Los Angeles, CA-based Relativity School  – an accredited branch campus of Philadelphia, PA-based Hussian College – has expressed interest in opening a regional campus for the Caribbean and Latin America in Curacao.

Glenn Kalison, President of Relativity Education – a division of Relativity Media – at the Relativity School explained his plans to an audience of Ministers, entrepreneurs, government officials, filmmakers, and other invited guests at the historic Roosevelt House.

Relativity Media creates and delivers educational programs in film, media, performing arts, and entrepreneurship. On June 17, the Relativity School will open a branch campus in China.
