In Georgia, a Festival Celebrates Arthouse Films

As Chairman of the Foreign Language Film Committee of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, I had the honor to be invited to be the Chairman of the Jury of the 13th Edition of the Batumi International Art House Film Festival (BIAFF) in Batumi, Georgia. A Black Sea resort and port city close to the border of Turkey is the capital of the Georgian Autonomous Republic of Adjara, Batumi is currently experiencing a tourist boom, nicknamed “Little Dubai” thanks to its tall high-rises popping everywhere, with plenty of restaurants with a great inexpensive food and friendly service.
