Having experienced an International Film Festival in Berlin, Germany I understand the fun and excitement a Film Festival brings to a city. Activities include talks by actors, actressess and film makers about their movie. Then there are the glamorous and glitzy red carpet photo opportunities for locals and tourists alike. Berlin buzzed with excitement in the days leading up to the film festival as stars arrived and tickets went on sale for the showings of each film festival selection. It’s an amazing opportunity to see several films in a more glamourous setting and to experience the glitz and the glamour of festival events. Check out Aruba Film Festival, or follow them on Twitter @arubafilmfest.

Hmmm. Richard Gere – eh? Sounds like a fun event – even if he weren’t hosting!

I’ve been to the Cannes Film Festival – it was pretty amazing, but would love, love to go to more. I didn’t even know Aruba had one – thanks for the tip off!
