The 5th annual BALINALE International Film Festival held in Bali 15 – 20 November, 2011, came to a close with rave reviews from audience members and participating filmmakers for its solid line-up of films and interesting workshops.

Now in its fifth year, BALINALE celebrated its Gala Opening Night at the festival’s official hotel partner W Retreat & Spa Bali – Seminyak. The evening saw many filmmakers, festival friends, supporters and sponsors in attendance where they were treated to a lavish dinner and special screening of The Magical World Of Silent Colour (Screen Archive South East, UK) followed by a glitzy after show party.
