Anyone may participate in registering film works in accordance with applicable regulations, both domestic films and international films.

Meanwhile, Jakarta Film Week does not limit the types of genres of films that are registered. “As for what genre, we accept all types of genres, because they are not limited to one particular genre. The point is how this film can be built and can convey sound, there are things that really want to be conveyed through the filmt,” said Damar Ardias the programmer for Jakarta Film Week.

Later, all registered films will go through a curation process and the selected films will have the opportunity to participate in the competition.

There are three categories of competition, namely the best international feature film award, the best international short film award and the best Indonesian feature film award.

In addition, films that have been registered and have gone through the curation process will be screened during the festival, on 18-21 November 2021either offline or online.
