The other benefit of Balinale is that many producers come to Bali to scout for film locations, increasing Bali’s international profile and injecting large sums of money into the Indonesian economy.
Many films are displayed in Cinépolis, a state-of-the-art theatre that exhibits 2D and 3D films. Cinépolis cinemas are located at Sidewalk Jimbaran and Plaza Renon.
Balinale also offers workshops to aspiring student filmmakers throughout the year. Those who produce work as part of these sessions may be able to present their work at the festival. A dedicated children’s program and Indonesian Cinema are also targeted to a local audience.
