4y ago


EDITORS NOTE - EDIT CONTAINS CONVERTED 4:3 MATERIAL It may not be Cannes but the Aruba Film Festival also has sun, beach and stars like its Mediterranean counterpart -- at least on a smaller scale. Now in its third year, Virginia Madsen, Ray Liotta and up-and-coming actor Xavier Samuel of "Twilight" fame were the guests of honour to the Caribbean film extravaganza. All walked the red carpet and talked about the sheer natural beauty of their surroundings. SOUNDBITE: Virginia Madsen, saying (English): "What strikes you when you get here is the physical beauty of the place, and the climate is just wonderful and the people. The people here are so warm and welcoming and they are very, very supportive of their film festival." SOUNDBITE: Ray Liotta, saying (English): "It's an interesting and exotic place to have one. I just hope that at this time of year they're able to bring enough people that will bring profile to movies." SOUNDBITE: Xavier Samuel, saying (English): "We've been having a great time actually. It kind of feels like you're in some kind of paradise. I think that makes it a very vibrant festival." Latin stars Marc Anthony and Juanes, on stage on different nights, brought the house down with electrifying performances. Cindy Martin, Reuters
