Hollywood Filmmakers to Be Honored
SANUR ~ The Bali Film Center (BFC) is to hold its first Bali Taksu Film Festival & Awards ceremony on October 25, with the four-day event dedicated to the early filmmakers of the 1930s who helped make Bali internationally famous.
There will also be an exposition of Bali-themed films, a tribute to Balinese filmmakers, a Christies Charity Art Auction and a Celebrity Golf Challenge.
At the event, directors and producers will explore Bali for possible future film locations and try to discover why Bali first came to the attention of Hollywood filmmakers like Andre Roosevelt, nephew of US President Theodore Roosevelt.
For the fifth consecutive year, the BFC will be attending the Association of Film Commissioners International Film Locations Trade Show in Santa Monica, California, from April 12-15. There they will be showcasing possible Indonesian film locations.
The BFC is a private organization providing film-production services and promoting Bali and Indonesia as shooting locations.
