Aruba International Film Festival


 

Aruba International Film Festival Year 5 Kicks Off October 7-11 2015.

The Aruba International Film Festival (AIFF) quickly became the international film community’s “must-attend” summer event after its opening in July 2010. After 4 intensely exciting years, the festival took a break in 2014 for a complete makeover and now is back with full force to celebrate year 5 from October 7th-11th, 2015. 

The festival offers a pleasurable and inviting atmosphere for filmmakers, press and film lovers. It serves to not only develop an understanding and appreciation of the art of cinema and filmmaking, but also to inspire, educate and promote emerging local and regional filmmaking talent. This in turn has helped position Aruba as a center of art, culture and creativity, and as a viable destination for international film and commercial productions.

The AIFF was founded in 2010 by film producers Jonathan Vieira and Giuseppe Cioccarelli, with artistic direction by 30-year industry veteran Claudio Masenza. Previous editions of the festival have showcased a diverse array of critically acclaimed fiction films and documentaries from every corner of the globe, and have attracted such notable industry names as:

Hollywood leading man Richard Gere (Pretty Woman, An Officer and a Gentleman)
Multi Oscar-winning editor Thelma Schoonmaker (Raging Bull, The Aviator)
Mexican writer/director Guillermo Arriaga (The Burning Plain, Babel)...

The Aruba International Film Festival (AIFF) has quickly become the international film community’s newest “must-attend” summer event. The festival offers a pleasurable and inviting atmosphere for filmmakers, press and film lovers. It serves to not only develop an understanding and appreciation of the art of cinema and filmmaking, but also to inspire, educate and promote emerging local and regional filmmaking talent. This in turn has helped position Aruba as a center of art, culture and creativity, and as a viable destination for international film and commercial productions.

The festival has also created an environment where local and Caribbean filmmakers can learn from and network with one another, while gaining a truly unique and exclusive festival experience.  The AIFF’s popular Caribbean Spotlight Series (CSS) and Aruba Flavor Shorts (AF) competitions have drawn some of the finest regional films to Aruba, and continue to provide a platform for local filmmakers to feature their latest works.  Films premiering in the CSS and AF such as 10 Ave Maria (Aruba), Muhe Frida (Aruba), Boys of Summer (Curaçao), Children of the Wind (Bonaire), and Peace: Memories of Anton de Kom (Netherlands/Suriname) have screened and won awards at international film festivals in the Caribbean, USA, Canada, Europe, and South America.

The fourth edition of the AIFF will feature nearly 40 films from over 25 countries having their world, international, or regional premieres in Aruba.  In addition, cutting-edge master classes, in-depth panel discussions, and “In Conversation With” sessions with top industry professionals will cover various aspects of the filmmaking process.
