Jakarta, 19 November 2021. Hosted by the Jakarta Provincial Tourism and Creative Economy
Office, the Jakarta Film Week 2021 is officially held on 18 – 21 November 2021. On the second
day, Friday, November 19, 2021, this international film festival presented screenings of national

In addition, question and answer sessions were also held after the screenings of the films, such

Another program also took place on the second day, namely the first Community session. The
event was held online, from 15.30 – 17.30 WIB, revolving around the topic Audience-Based Film
Festivals. Some of the speakers who took part in the session included Jamalludin Phonna from
Aceh Film Festival, Sukhadharmi from UCIFEST, Nauval Yazid from Europe on Screen, with Nada
Bonang from the Film Community as the moderator.
The discussion with these three speakers centered on how the pandemic has brought changes
to the orchestration of film festivals. One of the changes is the implementation of hybrid events,
aka offline and online.
“Hybrid will be the new normal for film festivals. Indeed, nothing replaces the experience of
watching and appreciating communally with other viewers. But by going online, we open ourselves up to a wider and more diverse audience, and many new ideas also originate from working on film festivals online,” said Nauval Yazid from Europe on Screen.
The Jakarta Film Week is held from 18-21 November 2021. The offline events are held at CGV
Grand Indonesia, Metropole Cinema XXI, and Ashley Wahid Hasyim Hotel. In the meantime, all
