Indonesia Come to the Big Screen

Indonesian Government Eager to Welcome Filmmakers to Indonesia

(5/25/2013) State News Agency Antara reports from Cannes, France that many international film producers are interested in undertaking film productions in Indonesia because of Indonesia’s rich diversity of culture and world heritage treasures, such as the ancient Buddhist temple of Borobudur.

Cokorda Istri Dewi from the Ministry of Tourism and the Creative Economy said the government is welcoming the desire to undertake film productions in Indonesia by providing a range of incentives to lure filmmakers to Indonesia.
Cokorda Istri Dewi confirmed that many filmmakers came to the Indonesian pavilion operated by the Ministry at the Cannes Film Festival May 15-16, 2013.

Lorna Tee, a film producer and festival consultant active in Southeast Asia said Indonesia has outstanding natural beauty that includes mountains, beaches and historical sites.

Tee who helped produce the Indonesian film “Postcards from the Zoo” that featured prominently at the Berlin Film Festival in 2011, added: “Indonesia should be able to explore several areas of the country that can be promoted as shooting locations for international films.”
