Night Bus, the winner of the Best Film category at the 2017 Indonesian Film Festival (FFI), will return to several cinemas on Thursday.

The film's director Emil Heradi said in a press release, as quoted by Antara news agency, that the upcoming screening was aimed at giving an opportunity for local movie buffs to watch the movie in the cinema.

Night Bus had previously been screened in cinemas in April. However, the screening only lasted for a week as it was hit with distribution problems.

In the FFI, Night Bus won a total of six awards for Best Film, Best Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Editor, Best Makeup Artist and Best Costume Designer categories. (jes/asw)
