Message from Gilbert Lefou, President of
the Mauriwood Film Industry Artists Association

Dear viewers & film enthusiasts,
as the President of the Mauriwood Film Industry Artists Association (MFIAA), it is a great honour for me to express my joy concerning the success of the film "JULIE" which premiered in March 2013.

Filmmaking is an everyday struggle for art to emerge in the form of motion pictures, and the setting up of a cinematographic industry in Mauritius is an even fiercer struggle requiring incredible energy & passion for it to happen. It is so hard & painful especially when we are located so far from Hollywood & Bollywood.

Yet, when I see with how much passion actors, technicians & other film enthusiasts volunteer their persevering efforts & creativity for Mauritian films to happen, I personally believe that we have no right to let such passion down! We simply cannot let these artists, technicians & other film enthusiasts of our beloved country live only in their dreams....because, just like stories are made into films, dreams need to be brought to reality!

Especially when we are gifted with such a beautiful country offering wonderful urban, rural & natural sites making of the country itself a mini-Hollywood. Not to forget that the Mauritian population is bilingual & treasures various facial traits that can simulate all the ethnicities of the world. And to end, filmmaking technology has become extremely affordable to shoot films of quality which have nothing to envy to Hollywood films nowadays...

The proof: "Julie", a film produced by the Mauritian studio Quadricolore Films & Entertainment Ltd, confirms the saying: "Yes! We can!". This 100% made in Mauritius by Mauritians film has been reviewed by many local & foreign professionals as being a revolution in Mauritian film making.

And the Mauriwood Film Industry Artists Association is proud to support such film projects which are driven by passion by the artists of Mauritius, despite the difficulties & the lack of support for filmmaking in Mauritius.

It is also worth noting that more than 150 local artists & technicians, people of all ages, from all communities, from all social levels, both employed & unemployed, literate & illiterate, participated in the production of the patriotic film "JULIE" in order to boost our local film industry to create a new sector of employment, as well as to propagate through the film a strong message against communalism, which consolidates the wonderful peace and harmony existing among our diifferent communities living together in Mauritius & Rodrigues.

It is with these noble words that I end this message, thanking all those who are trusting in my capacity as the President of the MFIAA. And I hereby also confirm my strong will to fight for the benefit of our film artists, technicians & other film enthusiasts of our wonderful country, Mauritius.
