Connecting Culture, the Arts, Youth & Development
YéleFest brought together young Haitian filmmakers, artists, musicians and
actors—joined by compatriots from Canada and the United States—to work
alongside representatives of non-governmental organizations, volunteer groups,
development agencies and donor governments. Together they will explore ways
to use culture and the arts to create new models for achieving sustainable
development. Wyclef Jean, founder and leader of Yéle Haiti, is convening
YéleFest and will also give his first public concert in Haiti in eight years.
YéleFest will be held in conjunction with another event taking place at the same
time and in the same location:
Festival Film Jakmèl is one of the country’s premiere cultural events, now
partnering with the Miami and Toronto International Film Festivals. Leading
names in international cinema including Dreamworks, HBO, Lions Gate and
Sony lend award-winning films that attract thousands of enthusiastic viewers
daily. Films screen non-stop in packed theaters, while renowned film directors
and talent are present to meet the press and public.
