Citilink Partners with Bali Film Festival

The 14th edition of the Bali International Film Festival (Balinale) recently announced that Citilink – a subsidiary of the national flag carrier Garuda Indonesia – has partnered with BALINALE – set to take place 18-21 November 2021.

In 2021, BALINALE, as in years past, will create programs and events that provide an important platform for Indonesian and independent cinema and serve as a springboard for the film-making industry to explore the destinations, cultures, and people of Indonesia.

Citilink is playing a vital role in the Festival by transporting BALINALE executives, celebrities, producers, directors, and fans from across the archipelago. Flying more than 89 routes to over 50 destinations, Citilink serves the Indonesian business community and tourism travel industry.


The thousands expected to attend this year’s Festival will enjoy Indonesian and international independent feature films, award-winning documentaries, narratives, and short films. But, unlike past Festivals, and to accommodate the demands of the global pandemic, this year’s BALINALE will present a combination of virtual and regulated in-person events that focus on education and filmmaker development.

The 4-day Festival program will utilize outdoor venues accessing the stunning natural beauty of Bali as event backdrops, special indoor screenings, and premieres. Meanwhile,  BalinaleX Industry Forum focuses on the commercial side of the film industry.
