NICH and the Film Commission are preparing for the 10th annual Belize International Film Festival - which will be start one month from today.

115 films – a number of them Belizean made – were submitted this time around, and so, the judges have been hard at work to narrow that number down to the entries of the best quality.

With that, the festival was officially launched today, and we spoke with the Director. Here’s what she told us:


The Film Festival takes place on July 17-19th in Placencia at the Belize Ocean Club.
