Special Recognition


Receiving special recognition from the film going public.

BALI - ISLAND OF THE DOGS is a film about the semi-feral dogs of Bali and our changing attitudes towards conquering nature. Produced by Lawrence Blair and directed by Dean Allan Tolhurst, the film explores how we view these 'demons'. The award was presented by Donna Smith, former Universal Studio executive and frequent contributor to the festival.

A long time supporter of the festival, Lawrence feels that the BALINALE performs a very valuable function for Indonesia where we will continue to see some wonderful films coming out of the festival.
