BALI&BEYOND NOVEMBER 2011

Bali is proud to host the ASEAN Film Festival 2011 themed “ASEAN – The Global Film Connection” in conjunction with the ASEAN Summit meeting. AFF 2011 will highlight the impressive film contributions from the 10 ASEAN member countries and will emphasize ASEAN’s ongoing cultural contribution to the world community in the presence of ASEAN delegates, film-lovers, and international media. With a thriving film industry well known regionally and internationally for its quality, Indonesia offers famous sites for important international film makers to shoot their productions, as was seen last year in the release of “Eat, Pray, Love” starring Julia Roberts. Almost at the same time, the BALINALE 2011 will return to Bali for their fifth annual event from November 15-20. Focusing on ASEAN films, the BALINALE will promote the production of films in the region and networking among members of the region’s film industry. Included in the festival program will be a workshop conducted by Gabrielle Kelly, Associate Arts Professor at NYU Tisch School of the Arts - Asia. Ms Kelly has produced an omnibus of narrative shorts from ASEAN country filmmakers. www.aseanfilmfestival.com, www.balinale.com
