Tuesday 21 June 2016, by SIGNIS

Jakarta, June 21st, 2016 (SAV Puskat). In 2015, Studio Audio Visual (SAV) Puskat organized a film festival to celebrate its 45th anniversary: the Film Festival Puskat (FFP) 2015. After a successful first edition, the festival will hold its second edition in October, under the theme “Preservation for the environment".

Through this film festival, SAV Puskat wants to actualize the vision of its founder, Fr. Ruedi Hofmann SJ, who, during his whole life, always promoted the values of honesty, justice, peace, inter-religious dialogue and harmony with nature. This film festival aims to give space and opportunity for the youth to express their faith and concerns regarding the actual situation of Indonesia.

Twenty entries coming from various provinces of the Indonesia participated in last year’s edition. Before the awarding ceremony, SAV Puskat organized a three days film workshop for the youth. The first day was a workshop on script wring by Armantono (script writer of many movies); the second day was about the independent spirit in Indonesian cinemas by Joseph Anggie Noen (film director), and the third day workshop was on film directing by Azhar Kinoi Lubis (film director). Around 40 young people/film makers attended each workshop.

From the final selection, 6 films won the competition. The selection was based on the content, the way to present faith, and local culture.

The awarding ceremony was organized on August 15, 2015 in Yogyakarta.
