Online filmmaking workshops are set to be held from Nov. 8 to 17 as a collaboration between the Indonesian Film Festival’s (FFI) Cerita Sinema workshop and Samsung’s Galaxy Movie Studio, a platform to learn the ins and outs of filmmaking from the experts.

Each episode will feature a renowned figure in the film industry who will share their knowledge. They are scriptwriter-director Gina S. Noer, producer Sheila Timothy, director Yandy Laurens and scriptwriter-director Ernest Prakasa. All of the episodes will be hosted by actor-director Dennis Adhiswara.
