"It is my hope that through efforts such as the Aiff, Aruba will become known not only as an idyllic vacation destination with its perfect sand beaches but also as a center for culture and cinematography. The diversity of the Island's population makes it an ideal place to see films from around the world, their characters mirrored in the faces of the Aurban people. At our international press conference in Los Angeles in February, Aruba will be seen for the first time in an entirely different and powerful demographic market, that of the international film community."
