IFAN IMSAIL

Indonesia

Ifan Ismail just realized in college, that he had been a film-buff since he was a child. Through his

activities in the Student Film League (Liga Film Mahasiswa/LFM) in ITB, he was immersed even deeper in the world of cinema. He tried his hand first into production for feature film Ada Apa Dengan Cinta? (AADC) as a propman and onion cutter. After that, he jumped into television and

filmmaking mainly as a screenwriter, for such variety shows like Extravaganza to feature films such as Habibie & Ainun and Sultan Agung. This profession took him to join the residency program, two of which are ASEAN in Residence, held by the Ministry of Culture of Thailand, and

Kyoto Filmmakers Lab in Kyoto. Both in 2014.

But, rather oddly, he also had his gig into film criticism, by joining RumahFilm.org, a film study website in 2010. Since 2017, he serves as the Coordinator Program for kineforum, an alternative film space, operating under the Film Committee of Jakarta Arts Council (DKJ). Until now, he still manages the kineforum program and writes screenplays.


 

Ifan Ismail baru sadar bahwa dia telah menyukai film sejak kecil, justru di bangku kuliah. Lewat kegiatannya di unit mahasiswa Liga Film Mahasiswa (LFM) di ITB, ia terbenam dalam dunia film dan menjajal banyak lini. Pertama, tercebur di produksi film Ada Apa Dengan Cinta? (AADC) sebagai tukang angkut dan pemotong bawang. Setelah itu terjun ke televisi dan perfilman sebagai penulis skenario. Mulai dari acara komedi Extravaganza hingga ke film Habibie & Ainun dan Sultan Agung. Profesi ini sempat membawanya mengikuti residensi ASEAN in Residence yang diadakan Kementerian Kebudayaan Thailand dan Kyoto Filmmakers Lab di Kyoto. Keduanya di tahun 2014.

Namun ia juga sempat mencicipi dunia kajian dan kritik film melalui RumahFilm.org. Sejak itu tercebur di kolam yang lain lagi sejak 2017, menjabat sebagai Koordinator Program kineforum, sebuah program dan ruang putar alternatif di bawah Komite Film Dewan Kesenian Jakarta (DKJ). Hingga saat ini masih mengelola program kineforum dan menulis skenario.
