This essay makes new examinations of the cultural changes that have occurred in Indonesia since the end of the New Order (1998) by exploring the role of activist film festivals in imagining and enacting social change. Indonesia has seen a more open political-social environment in the last fifteen years from which local filmmaking, and the informal networks that catalyse it, have flourished.
