about us

astapictures established as a small community in Jakarta, Indonesia, consist of individuals who started the project of short film called "Durian" in early 2003. Currently, astapictures is managed by by Farishad I. Latjuba (@flatjuba) and Onez Kurniawan.

The short film "Durian" traveled to many prestigious festivals for the first timer director, Farishad I. Latjuba. The festivals are, to name a few: Bangkok International Film Festival, Dresden International Short Film Festival (Germany), Festival Internacional de Cine de Mar Del Plata (Argentina), Short Shorts Film Asia (Tokyo, Japan), Toronto Asian Film Festival (Canada) and many more. After "Durian", astapictures have worked together with different film communities in Indonesia and with several independent filmmakers.

In 2004, with Farishad I. Latjuba, astapictures co-produced with FAMU, Czech Republic, the short film called "Klayaban", which loosely adapted from the short story. The film was shot in Prague, Czech Republic, with the post-production was split between Jakarta and Prague. In 2005, the short film "Klayaban" officially selected at Sydney Film Festival.

In addition to the festival bound short films, astapictures also produced several PSA (Public Service Announcement), Corporate Profiles and Television Commercials. We are planning to launch our first feature length film soon.
