The Indonesian Film Board (BPI) (see Goal 2, Policies and Measures Supporting the Development of Film Industry) is one concrete example of a dialogue mechanism between CSOs and the government regarding policies that are guaranteed to be sustainable by law. Article 68, Article 69, and Article 70 of Law 33 of 2009 on Film (see Goal 1, Specific Policies that Regulate the Culture and Creative Economy Sector) mandates the establishment of the BPI as a concrete manifestation of the increasing role of the civil society in the advancement of national film.
Some examples of BPI's concrete work as a government partner in the film policy sector include:
1. Mechanism for certification and standardization of film profession development (in cooperation with the Ministry of Manpower and the Ministry of Education and Culture);
2. Organizing the Indonesian Film Festival (in cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Culture);
3. Amendments of Law 33 of 2009 on Film (in cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Culture);
4. Formulation of the National Film Master Plan (in cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Culture);
5. The organization of AKATARA Indonesian Film Market & Business Forum (in cooperation with the (former) Creative Economy Agency; see Goal 1, Measures that Encourage Job Creation and Entrepreneurship in the Cultural and Creative Economy Sector); and
6. Publication of Guidebook for the Establishment of Regional Film Commissions in 2018 (in cooperation with the (former) Creative Economy Agency).
In general, the dialogue mechanism between CSOs and the government regarding policies is aimed at contributing to the achievements of the National Strategy for Culture (see Goal 1, Main Policies and Measures that Contain Strategies and Frameworks for the Development of an Integrated Cultural and Creative Economy Sector):
1. Institutional reform and culture budgeting to support the advancement of culture agenda (Agenda 6); and
2. Strengthen the role of the government as facilitator in the advancement of culture (Agenda 7).
Indonesia has set up film commissions in five pilot regions of Bandung, Bojonegoro, Siak, Banyuwangi, and Yogyakarta. The regional film commission is a one-stop service/an integrated film production service, such as local permits, incentives, location, and production services. It facilitates and assists film-makers in undertaking film shooting and film production in Indonesia and easing the process for getting necessary permits at the local level. Working together with local film communities, they will support the entire production process on location.
