Experience “Cinema In Paradise” at the 3rd Annual Bahamas International Film Festival (BIFF) 2006!

How would the experience of annual celebrations of outstanding films amidst the idyllic tropical settings of Bahamas be for an international audience? Well, nothing short of ‘brilliant’! And needless to say, the 3rd Annual Bahamas International Film Festival (BIFF) 2006, about to take place from December 7-10 will have all the necessary components to catch the fancy of the international media with its brilliant film screenings coupled with the nation’s tropical beauty and cultural charms that the festival attendees will be able to indulge in. With able support and close assistance of the Founding Sponsors Atlantis Paradise Island Resort and the Islands of The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, the three-day long festivities in the international film festival circuit will kick-off at the Atlantis Theatre, Paradise Island and at Galleria 6 JFK in Nassau, the two cultural hubs of Bahamas. Programs, panels, and gala parties to be held at various locations around Nassau and Paradise Island are supposed to be essential elements of this unique and gorgeous event. Above all, the most strikingly beautiful part of the whole event is that it is available and accessible to visitors and Bahamians alike.

In its mission statement, the Bahamas International Film Festival (BIFF) claims that the festival organizers are committed to exhibiting unique films that showcase truly international themes. Films that focus on combining both enjoyment and thought provoking concepts via the cinematic arts are more than welcome as entrants. Leslie Vanderpool, the Founder & Executive Director of BIFF says that while they have screened hundreds of films from all over the world and from all Diaspora, they will be showcasing a slate of fifty narrative, documentary and short films over the festival’s four days.

A truly unique and special attraction of the Bahamas film festival event will be the star-value of actor Nicolas Cage, who is an Oscar winner and a Bahamian resident. He will be present in the spectacular event as a recipient of the Career Achievement Tribute sponsored by Lombard Odier Darier Hentsch (LODH). What more, the much talked-about BIFF Tribute Chopard Award will also be presented at a gala event at the Atlantis Theatre at the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort and Casino to Mr. Cage by Sir Sean Connery, his co-star in “The Rock.”

This gala attraction is due on Friday, December 8.
