Indrive’s Alternative Film Project to hold 2024 Award edition in Indonesia

काठमाडौं ।

Alternativa Film Project, a global non-profit film initiative, founded by international technology company inDrive, is hosting the second edition of its nomadic Alternativa Film Awards – which aim to recognise the social impact of films from developing industries – in Indonesia in late November 2024.

Additionally, as part of an expanded programme for 2024, the initiative is launching a new Festival showcase alongside the awards in Indonesia, featuring public screenings of all shortlisted films from the nominees.

The move to Indonesia follows the successful inaugural edition of the Alternativa Film Project in 2023, which was held in Kazakhstan, and the upcoming second edition will expand its focus to the Indonesian and South East Asian market.

The Awards open for submissions from 17th June, and filmmakers from all Asian countries are invited to submit feature films, documentaries, animation and hybrid films for competition. According to organization, for the short film category, entries will be accepted exclusively from South East Asia.

The Jury will present winners with monetary prizes to be spent on an impact campaign or further development of their filmmaking skills. The total prize fund stands at $100,000, with $20,000 each awarded in the four full-length categories, and $10,000 each for the two winners in the Shorts Awards category.

Liza Surganova, Head of Alternativa Film Project, says “The Alternativa Film Awards serve as a tool to support the development of local film industries – by celebrating filmmakers from underrepresented communities who have important stories to tell and that have the potential to impact the cultural and social landscape. Cinema is a powerful way to create change and the ambition of Alternativa is not only to challenge injustices in the film industry, but to bring about real progress in the world – which is why it’s also so important to share the shortlisted films with the public through our new Festival initiative.”
