Balinale at a glance 
Bali International Film Festival aka BALINALE was established in 2007 by Yayasan Bali Taksu Indonesia, a non-profit organization founded by Christine Hakim, Indonesia’s internationally recognized film actress, and Deborah Gabinetti, director of Bali Film Center. The foundation works towards developing understanding and respect for freedom of expression, human rights and intellectual property rights and fosters cross-cultural respect and tolerance through filmmaking workshops, seminars and film festivals.

BALINALE gives Indonesian filmmakers an opportunity to present their work to a global audience while networking with international filmmakers. The festival also provides an opportunity to invite foreign filmmakers to screen their films while experiencing Indonesia's accommodating culture and diverse locations for possible film locations and story ideas.

Workshops and seminars are an important part of the festival’s commitment to the community, a number of which are offered free of charge to Indonesian students and young filmmakers.
