The Film Festival Returns

The Belize International Film Festival is back for the 5th time since 2003, with its opening night gala scheduled for this Friday, July 16th, 2010. They've got films from across the globe, including Belize.

Organizer Suzette Zayden told us why films festivals are so important.

[Linked Image] [Linked Image] "Normally, you would not see a film from Mexico, you would not see a film from Spain, you would not see a film from another part of the Caribbean, and you would not see a European film. Seeing these kinds of films are scarce, and what we're able to do with the film festival is bring you alternative films, alternative independent films from around the world which are exceedingly far better made than these Hollywood blockbusters. The only thing, I mentioned before, that they lack is the marketing behind them. So for many people who are looking to learn about other cultures, who want to see what life is like in other places, who want a cheap travel ticket, you can say, to different realities and worlds, these films offer that opportunity for them to experience the entire world in a theatre screen. It's the building of an industry, and so for me it's very important, and I enjoy the process, because I am certain the festival is the first step in building Belize's audiovisual industry."

The Festival will begin this Friday and end on July 24th, and is taking place in the City, in San Pedro, and at Cayo. There will also be workshops on seminars on Screenwriting, Editing, Digital Photography, Music Video production, and Documentary making.

Live and let live
