Balinale - Bali International Film Festival September 24-30, 2018
Returning for its 12th Year, BALINALE – the Bali International Film Festival will be held September 24-30, 2018.

BALINALE is Indonesia’s first and longest-running film event that has screened hundreds of Indonesian and international films to enthusiastic audiences that have included leading directors, producers and actors from across Indonesia and the world.

The theme for this year’s BALINALE is ‘Timeless’ – reflecting the extraordinary ability of film to communicate hope and meaning through the use of images and sounds.

The organizing committee will select films from all genres of fiction and documentary, feature length, and short films that express the most complex of human stories as well as the simple profundity of world-changing emotion.

Submissions are now open for all independent films.

BALINALE is dedicated to supporting local filmmakers by providing a free “Waiver Grant” for Indonesian film submissions to provide an opportunity to exhibit local films to the international audience attending the Festival as well as permitting Indonesian filmmakers to attend workshops and meet international filmmakers.

In 2018, Bali International Film Festival expands its ‘Official Venue Partnership’ with state-of-the-art Cinemaxx Theater (PT Cinemaxx Global Pasifik) to reach an even wider audience with screenings during the Festival at two Bali Cinemaxx locations - the Lippo Mall Kuta and Renon Plaza Denpasar.

Balinale will also be promoted at Cinemaxx’s complexes nationwide in the period leading up to the festival. Cinemaxx is a national cinema chain known for providing a premium movie-going experience. The group supports the festival and its related programs as an important platform for Indonesian films and in developing the country’s human resources for the creative and entertainment sector.

The Festival has formed an ‘Official Hotel Partnership’ with newly opened 5-star Aryaduta Bali in Kuta. Aryaduta Bali Resort is located above the Lippo Mall Kuta giving easy access to the festival’s Cinemaxx Theater venue.
