The third annual Aruba International Film Festival (AIFF) has begun accepting submissions for its 2012 Caribbean Spotlight Series competition. The event showcases the work of regional filmmakers or productions dedicated to the subject of Caribbean culture, society and history.

Only full-length feature films or documentaries with a runtime of 50 to 120 minutes will be eligible (no short films accepted), and rules require they were completed after Jan. 1, 2012. There are excellent incentives for submitting a film aside from earning a prestigious award and cash prize. AIFF will provide airfare and accommodations for filmmakers.
