The first installment of Festival Film Tempo (FFT) will be held on Nov. 27 at XXI Epicentrum in South Jakarta.
The festival committee's representative, Leila S. Chudori, said at the nominations announcement event on Thursday that the magazine first released the "Best Film According to Tempo" edition in 2000. In 2010, the special edition then added new categories, including best director, best actress and best actor.
The upcoming event, which will be held in collaboration with Creative Economy Agency (Bekraf), will be the publication’s first film awarding night.
Unlike other film festivals, the FFT chooses its own nominees and considers films without censorship license. Moreover, the nominated films are not required to be screened in commercial cinemas.
Leila added that the FFT also recognizes foreign talents, as long as the films were produced locally.
Actress Putri Marino is among the nominees in the best actress category. She expressed her happiness upon seeing that her movie had been nominated along with internationally recognized local films, such as Turah and Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts.
