Jogja International Film Festival (JIFF) will conduct a prestigious and exclusive Awards Night with the presence of kings and queens from Nusantara, filmmaking workshop, and screenings.

JIFF is working together with the Sultanate Office to conduct Royal Ceremony and to provide an opportunity for winning filmmakers to share their knowledge to hundreds of film, communication and broadcasting students in Yogyakarta.

Winning filmmakers would also be gratified to visit the famous Borobudur temple, the 9th-century Mahayana Buddhist temple and the world's largest Buddhist temple that is one of the seven wonders of the world. There also be a visit to the Prambanan Temple, a 9th-century Hindu temple compound that is dedicated to the Trimurti, a cultural walk through the 262-years-old magical Royal Palace of Yogyakarta span for about 14.000 m2, and enjoying the rich culture of Yogyakarta through the Ramayana Dance.



The festival will be held in July 2018. On that day, we will hold an Award Ceremony in Jogja. Jogja International Film Festival will give awards for best movie, International Awards of Outstanding Excellence, International Awards of Excellence, International Awards of Merit, and special jury awards (if necessary). All accepted filmmakers are honored at the Awards Ceremony. The overall winner will be granted an exquisite statue, and winning filmmakers will be granted well-framed certificates for their respective winning categories during the Awards Night.

Regardless their winning status, winning filmmakers who can't attend the Award Night, will only receive laurels.
The festival will be featuring screenings, film-making workshops, and special guest appearances by filmmakers, mass media, and celebrities.
