The Bali International Film Festival (aka Balinale) will this year add to its industry functions by launching the BalinaleX, a two-day conference on expansion of the film business in Indonesia.

The conference will run Sept. 22-23, ahead of the festival which runs Sept. 24-30 in Kuta, Bali.
Speakers include: Gerald Dibbayawan; Rudy Salahuddin, Deputy Minister Coordinating Ministry for the Economy; Sd Darmono, chairman of the Jababeka Group, U.S. producer Jay Stern; former NBC executive Vicki Horwits; and British entrepreneur Richard Branson by video link.
