During Jakarta’s transition out of large-scale social restrictions (PSBB), film productions have been required to limit the number of people on set.

Jakarta Tourism and Creative Economy Agency head Cucu Ahmad Kurnia suggested limiting the number of actors. “A production should involve no more than five people in one scene,” he told kompas.com.

He added that all production teams must take health precautions, such as wearing layered or disposable masks, applying hand sanitizer and wearing face shields. “The cloth masks must be replaced every four hours,” Cucu said.

On Tuesday, the Education and Culture Ministry and Tourism and Creative Economy Ministry allowed the cultural and creative industries, including cinemas and production houses, to resume their activities under certain requirements. One of those requirements was avoiding activities that involved large crowds.

The Indonesian Cinema Owners Association (GPBSI) announced that cinema chains affiliated with the organization would reopen on July 29. These include Cinema XXI, CGV and Cinepolis.

Film production in Indonesia halted in late March as a result of the outbreak, while new releases were postponed and cinema chains stopped operating in April. (wir/wng)
