About JAFF

Jogja-NETPAC Asian Film Festival ( JAFF ) is a premier Asian film festival in Indonesia focusing on the development of Asian cinema. This festival not only contributes to introducing Asian cinema to a wider public in Indonesia, but it also provides a space for the intersection of many sectors such as arts, culture, and tourism.

Since its inception, JAFF has worked closely with NETPAC (Network for the Promotion of Asian Cinema), a worldwide organization of 30 member countries. Headquartered in Colombo Srilanka, NETPAC is a pan-Asian film and cultural organization involving critics, filmmakers, festival organizes and curators, distributors and exhibitors, as well as educators. It is considered a leading authority in Asian cinema.

Each year, JAFF presents several awards to the best films in Asia such as Golden Hanoman Award, Silver Hanoman Award, NETPAC Award, Blencong Award and Geber Award to express the deepest appreciation for Asian cinema.

About NETPAC

NETPAC is a worldwide organization founded in 1990 by Aruna Vasudev as the result of a conference organized in New Delhi by Cinemaya – The Asian Film Quarterly, at the request of UNESCO. It was set up with the aim to promote a greater understanding and appreciation of Asian films at a time when Asian cinema was just coming into its own but was relatively unknown regionally and internationally. Cinemaya a quarterly film journal launched independently by Aruna Vasudev in 1988, had already paved the way.

 

NETPAC is especially proud to have brought awareness to independent and non-mainstream films by new directors whose works might have languished due to a lack of promotion caused by limited funds and resources.  Now Asian films have a prominent presence worldwide.
