A large crowd attended the Indonesian Film Festival launch at Village 6 Cinemas in Suva on Wednesday night.

The Republic of Indonesia Ambassador to Fiji, Dr Gary Jusuf, noted that people of Fiji were keen movie -goers.

“I often see cinemas in Suva packed with people queuing to watch a movie as a way to spend their leisure time with friends or families,” he said.

“However, majority of Fijian moviegoers are mostly familiar with Hollywood and Bollywood movies.”

He also said most people were exposed to Chinese, Korean as well as Japanese movies while only a few have seen an Indonesian movie.

“I guess it is now time for the people of Fiji to be introduced to Indonesia’s diverse culture, social life and to create a better understanding of Indonesia and its people through our films,” Ambassador Jusuf said.

The three-day film festival will screen three movies – ‘Rainbow Troops’, ‘The Dreamer’ and ‘Denias: Singing on the Cloud’. Admission is free. The films can be viewed from 7pm to 9pm.

The festival ends today.
