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)...




Giuseppe Cioccarelli, executive producer, presents the Aruba Festival

Giuseppe Cioccarelli is a veteran Line Producer with over 20 years of experience. He started his career in Italy in 1986 at FilmMaster, the biggest commercial production company in Italy. In 1990 he started to freelance as a Line Producer for some of the most successful commercial filmmakers in the world, among them Tarsem, Steve Rogers, Michael Bay, Peter Thwaites, Lenard Dorfman, Giuseppe Tornatore, John Hushenurst, Waine Maule, and Louis Pascale Couvelaire.

He has also worked for some of the biggest Production Companies such as Radikal Media, Knucklehead, Strawdogs, and Gorgeous. Some of Giuseppe's credits include Christmas in India, Manuale d'Amore 2, Grande Grosso e Verdone, Italians (produced by Aurelio De Laurentiis), BlackOut (produced by Capitol), and Harb Hatalia (produced by al-Masah), a blockbuster movie that has been seen by over one billion people in the Arab world. Giuseppe has a keen sense for locations all around the world and has traveled the globe in his career and shot movies in Australia, South Africa, Morocco, Dubai, Brazil, Spain, France, Bulgaria, Malta, Philippines, India, Italy and Syria just to name a few.

"It is my hope that through efforts such as the AIFF, Aruba will become known not only as an idyllic vacation destination with its perfect sand beaches but also as a center for culture and cinematography. The diversity of the Island's population makes it an ideal place to see films from around the world, their characters mirrored in the faces of the Aurban people. At our international press conference in Los Angeles in February, Aruba will be seen for the first time in an entirely different and powerful demographic market, that of the international film community."
