  • I'm glad to be selected in the program. I think this is festival with distinct characteristic among other festival in Indonesia. The minus for me is about the programming and presentation. I think it is confusing a little bit. Many schedules, many venues (different location). Communication is not that good although not bad. They rarely contact the filmmaker and also not much publication or promotion at social media. Also no access to documentation, no audience report post festival? Hope the next event you getting better, guys.
