Our composers are very excited by the opportunity to use their craft to make significant artistic contributions to these wonderful films”, Dr. Edward Bilous, Director of the Juilliard Center for Innovation in the Arts.

The formal launch of the partnership with The Juilliard School will be held in Jakarta in November 2022 personally presented by Juilliard Director Edward Bilous where we will screen the completed films and conduct a Masterclass for senior-level Indonesian composers and filmmakers.
