In anticipation of my first ever trip to the Caribbean, this AIFF preview will take a look at some of this year's offerings, from international fest faves like The Lobster to the Caribbean Spotlight series and buzzy genre fare like The Final Girls. Plus, I talk with programming director Aaron Hosé on the past, present and future of what is not only one of the most enticing destination festivals out there, but one that is ready to offer local support to indie filmmakers the world over with the inaugural edition of the International Film Market Aruba (IFMA).
The 2015 Aruba International Film Festival takes place October 7 - 11. In the coming days please look for reviews and festival diaries chronicling the cultural flavor and social scene of the fest. In the meantime, click on through the gallery below for top film picks and my Q&A with Aaron Hosé.
