EIGHT filmmakers will be in the country this week to kick-off the second Islands in the World Oceania International Film Festival (IWOIFF) set to begin on Friday at USP's Japan-Pacific ICT Centre.

The festival will run from Friday April 11 to Thursday April 17 at the ICT Centre and members of the public are encouraged to watch the films, which are all free of charge.

As well as features and documentaries, there will also be short films and each show will be concluded with a question and answer session with the film maker(s).

In an interview yesterday, event director Larry Thomas said he was excited about the show, confirming that filmmakers from around the Pacific region as well as Argentina, France, Italy and Australia would be featuring this year.

"Obviously, you're going to get a great selection of films and like last year, we had both documentary and feature films," Mr Thomas said.

"So it's really quite exciting, they're all very happy to come here even though it's a long distance, but I think for us also, it's the opportunity for us to see their films and hear them present them."

He said there would also be two sets of panel discussions this year — one on Monday April 14 and the other on Tuesday April 15.

"On Monday is the one on the documentary film process and basically, they'll talk about the process of making a film — form the idea to the final product.

"For Tuesday, we're having one for television which looks at the local content."
