First established in 2007, the Balinale International Film Festival returns to Bali October 20-25, 2009, steadfast in its commitment to provide an opportunity for international filmmakers to show and screen their films to the Indonesian market while, simultaneously, exposing Indonesia's culture and unrivalled beauty to the international filmmaking community.
If it's about film, expect to find it at the Balinale International Film Festival: Six days of workshops, social gatherings and film screenings appealing to both those working in the film industry or to popcorn-fueled movie maniacs.
A Genuine Bargain
Perhaps the best thing about the Balinale is its prices. Friends of the Festival Passes with priority admission to all films cost only Rp. 150,000 per person (US$15), while tickets to individual screenings sell for only Rp. 25,000 (US$2.50). Tickets are limited and many showing are expected to be sell-outs! Early ticket purchase is strongly recommended.
