In addition, the FFI Committee chaired by Reza Rahadian announced that this year’s Indonesian Film Festival would have the theme “Image”. The name was chosen with the meaning of “shadow” or “image” which was inspired by a poem by Usmar Ismail.

“‘Citra’ is pinned as the name of the Indonesian film award which has been given since 1967 and has become the highest symbol of Indonesian film supremacy,” wrote the FFI Committee.

“The Citra Cup which is awarded every year is a thread of Indonesian film achievements that forms a map of the dynamics and progress of Indonesian film before, now and in the future,” they continued.

“This theme was chosen as the general theme of the festival and does not bind the themes of the films that will participate in FFI 2023,” wrote the FFI Committee.

Regarding film participation for the FFI 2023 competition, the Committee also officially opened FFI 2023 registration. Registration for all FFI 2023 judging categories was carried out online on their official website.

Long story film registration will be held on 30 March-15 August 2023; then non-length story films which include short stories, documentaries, and animations will be held simultaneously with the registration of film critics on 30 March – 31 August 2023.
