Aruba International Film Festival


 

Aruba International Film Festival Year 5 Kicks Off October 7-11 2015.

The Aruba International Film Festival (AIFF) quickly became the international film community’s “must-attend” summer event after its opening in July 2010. After 4 intensely exciting years, the festival took a break in 2014 for a complete makeover and now is back with full force to celebrate year 5 from October 7th-11th, 2015. 

The festival offers a pleasurable and inviting atmosphere for filmmakers, press and film lovers. It serves to not only develop an understanding and appreciation of the art of cinema and filmmaking, but also to inspire, educate and promote emerging local and regional filmmaking talent. This in turn has helped position Aruba as a center of art, culture and creativity, and as a viable destination for international film and commercial productions.

The AIFF was founded in 2010 by film producers Jonathan Vieira and Giuseppe Cioccarelli, with artistic direction by 30-year industry veteran Claudio Masenza. Previous editions of the festival have showcased a diverse array of critically acclaimed fiction films and documentaries from every corner of the globe, and have attracted such notable industry names as:

Hollywood leading man Richard Gere (Pretty Woman, An Officer and a Gentleman)
Multi Oscar-winning editor Thelma Schoonmaker (Raging Bull, The Aviator)
Mexican writer/director Guillermo Arriaga (The Burning Plain, Babel)...

Three time Academy Award winner for editing Thelma Schoonmaker in an up-close-and-personal interview about what it has been like to work alongside Martin Scorses for over 40 years. She has worked on films ike Raging Bull, The Departed and Casino.

First, Thelma started off by saying how happy she was to be in Aruba. She lived in Aruba until she was 15 and all she remembers of the island is a dreamlike image of pristine beaches and coconuts. Hmmm, that isnt too far off from the reality of this veritable paradise.

Thelma chuckled when she recounted the fact that she never intended to go into cinema, that it was in fact a mistake. She used to teach and once upon a time, editing had been a "myterious craft" to her. Well, apparently not anymore as she has won 3 Academy Awards for best editing!!!

When asked about how difficult it is to work with a visionary like Scorsese, she replied: "Great geniuses need a great deal of support." She explains that he is the best editor of his films and that she doesnt fight him, she merely works with him and remains a very patient woman. She smiled and excalimed, "It's great to be working with a genius!... After all, I can't complain...I work for the best director in the world!"

Interviewer Kaleem Aftab asked, "Well, if he is such a genius, why are you the one with all the Oscars?" Everyone laughed, including Kaleem and she replied, "When I received the Oscar for Raging Bull, I waited for them to call Martin's name afterwards. But they never did. So, in a way I felt it was his win and not mine. And I've never felt the same way about my Oscar since he didnt win."
