Central Java, a province that
has a long history of art, rich in language, arts, architecture,
and rooted in literature and tradition. The usage of its
language has emphasized the richness of the culture. It is
spoken not only by the Java people, but also in Suriname, New
Caledonia, and several parts in Malaysia.
Entering the digital era, we hope Central Java International
Film Festival (CJIFF)
could popularize the Java culture and history to the world, as
well as to exchange the art and culture through filmmaking.
CJIFF welcomes all filmmakers, newcomer, and students to star in
our festival and to make their hard-worked film shine.
Awards Ceremony will be held
and hosted by one of the Nusantara kingdoms in Central Java,
presented with style, in a one of a kind artistic way, and that
is deep in spiritualism. Winning filmmakers will be overwhelmed
with its traditional charm and warm greetings.
Kings and queens from Nusantara are invited. The Festival will
also hold filmmaking workshop and selected screenings.
Winning filmmakers would also be pampered with the magnificent
Borobudur, Prambanan Temple Compounds, one of the UNESCO World
Heritage Centre, and be thrilled with the dance of Ramayana
while exchanging experience with other winning filmmakers.
