Renaissance Curaçao Resort & Casino will turn into a movie lovers’ paradise this month during the first Curaçao International Film Festival Rotterdam (Curaçao IFFR.) It will be an annual event.

Set for March 29 - April 1, more than 30 independent, documentary and short films from around the globe will screen during the festival.

"Marley," the story of the life and music of reggae legend Bob Marley, will kick off the festival on March 29 with its Caribbean premiere at The Cinemas, located at the Renaissance Mall.

Curaçao IFFR will bring insight into Caribbean and Latin cultures through both film and music, with Jamaican entertainment at the Renaissance Rif Fort following the screening of "Marley" on March 29.

Friday’s activities will focus on Caribbean work, and Saturday will highlight Curaçao’s culture. The program, developed in collaboration with the International Film Festival Rotterdam, includes award winning films and audience favorites like "Shame" (UK, 2011) by Steve McQueen, the Oscar-nominated "Monsieur Lazhar" (Canada, 2011) by Philippe Falardeau, Hivos Tiger award-winner "De jueves a domingo" (Chile, 2012) by Dominga Sotomayor and more.

The festival will also showcase educational programs for students and special events, including nightly performances by two Curaçao youth orchestras and a unique exhibition of Curaçao’s cameras dating back to 1961.
