Recipient of the Audience Choice Award is Carl Valiquet for DAY IN DAY OUT.
Long time resident of Bali, Carl and his producing partner Andan attend the festival every year. "I look forward to attending the Balinale International Film Festival. I try to see every film. The week spent in the darkness of the movie theater is always enlightening. Balinale’s program is each time diverse and interesting. This year, I especially wanted to see the films made by Indonesian directors as their films help me to learn more about Indonesia, my adopted Country".
The couples film DARAH DAN DUPA was awarded their first Audience Choice Award in 2009.
