Entering the 13th year of JAFF, this year we are back with the program which provides a place to collect freshly new ideas for the film industry, namely Jogja Future Project. This program aimed to select 10 film project titles which have developed their storylines, scripts, production designs until their post-production stage or the editing stage. The selected 10 are having the chance to meet face to face with film professionals from Indonesia as well as abroad.

JFP is a collaborative program whose main goal is giving a chance for young talents to develop their skills in film making. Through this program, JAFF as a festival which focuses on the development of Asian cinemas and independent filmmakers, hopes to help their carrier in the future by providing them the access to meet the professionals. In its second year, JFP is happening in November 30th until December 3rd and is one of JAFF 2018’s seeded programs.

New Colors in Asian Film Industry

By. Said Nurhidayat

Difficulties regarding the funding of film productions have been experienced at least annually by the filmmakers. Though it seems to be a never ending problem, Jogja-NETPAC Asian Film Festival (JAFF) always tries to seek for solutions to the problem for JAFF aims to be a festival gathering all lines involved in the cinematic world.

Jogja-NETPAC Asian Film Festival offers some newly-brewed solutions to escape the funding problem through a pitching competition called Jogja Future Project, in which young filmmakers and the investors meet face to face. The solutions provided in this competition will cover the problems faced from the production to the distribution processes.  Upon its second year, Jogja Future Project has been attracting more people to participate. Hopefully the agenda could be held annually. This year, particularly, Jogja Future Project will widen the spaces for the young filmmakers and investors to meet.

Jogja Future Project as a competition does not limit the participations from the professionals only, but from the upcoming talents as well. This program could be their very first experience, which hopefully, could drive them into the real world of film industry. In other words, Jogja Future Project also takes the role as one of their study spaces. It is impossible to deny that JAFF itself is considered as the most popular display platform in Indonesia, in which the participants could easily get the spotlight which will then lead them to prestigious positions, especially when they become one of the nominations. Believe it or not, Jogja Future Project could be a tool to jack up the popularity of the filmmakers or their production houses. Considering these points, the positive outcomes of Jogja Future Project are hoped to fill out the plain and blank spaces in Asian film industry with new characterized colors.
