The other benefit of Balinale is that many producers come to Bali to scout for film locations which increases Bali’s profile on the international stage and injecting large sums of money into the Indonesian economy.
Many of the films are displayed in Cinépolis; a state-of-the-art theatre that is capable of exhibiting 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 have an opportunity to present their work at the festival. There is also a dedicated children’s program and Indonesian Cinema which is targeted to a local audience.
