The Bali International Indigenous Film Festival will be celebrating its second year on Friday, May 10. There will be 12 film directors from 12 different countries showcasing films at the Njana Tilem Museum, Mas, Ubud. The traditional opening ceremony will feature three documentary films.
From 11–12 May, 32 film screenings will be presented at the Paradiso, Ubud. These films will draw from many topics such as indigenous wisdom, connection with nature, solution-focused alternatives, land rights issues, success stories, forest preservation and the use of technology to support indigenous interests under the banner of this year’s theme “stories that matter”. If you want to explore their countless stories, booking in advance is recommended by the organiser because the venue only accommodates up to 120 people.
