Through the Lens" is our first short film showcase that will give you a new kind of cinematic experience. With an award-winning film lineup and a panel consisting of Melbourne-based experts in the film industry, we invite you to be a part of a unique interactive session.

Through the Lens offers a new and fresh introduction to the growing Indonesian short film industry. There will be a screening of three carefully curated Indonesian short films, followed by a panel discussion. These films include In the Year of the Monkey (Prenjak), which won the Leica Cine Discovery Prize at the Cannes Film Festival 2016. The Fox Exploits the Tiger’s Might touches on the taboo subject of sex in Indonesia. And Jenny is the latest work from acclaimed director, Joko Anwar. We will also screen the winning film from IFF’s very own Short Film Competition. With a diverse range of genres, Through the Lens will be the perfect kick-start prior to our Main Screening.

Through the Lens aims to cater to those who are simply looking for a new type of film experience, as well as movie enthusiasts who want to gain insight to the technical perspectives of filmmaking. It’s truly an exhibition of cinema that you would not want to miss. So save the date for 7:00PM on the 5th of April 2017 at the Interactive Cinema Space in the University of Melbourne. And don’t miss out on the chance to chat with the industry’s greatest, as well as film lovers alike!
