Lifelike Pictures producer Sheila Timothy, CGV Cinemas director Dian Sunardi Munaf and Agni Ariatama from the Indonesian Film Board (BPI) are to act as respondents while financial consultant-cum-film actor Ligwina Hananto is to be the moderator.

In a text interview with The Jakarta Post, Lisabona said, “The discussion will present data of the film industry, ranging from the development of cinemas, film workers and the viewers’ behaviors to production diversity. With objective data, the industry would be able to have more diversity and would be open to newcomers and we do need newcomers in the industry, as Indonesia is a vast country.”

To be held in the ballroom of the Sultan Hotel, which has a capacity for 300 people, the discussion is free and open to the public on a first-come-first-served basis.

“Ideally, participants in the discussions are those working in the film industry, economy and culture policymakers, lecturers, researchers and students who are interested in the economics of the film industry,” Lisabona added. (wng)
