Fourcolours Films is an independent production company based in Jogjakarta, Indonesia, and founded by Director Eddie CAHYONO, Producer/Director Ifa ISFANSYAH and Producer Narina SARASWATI. In the beginning, Fourcolours Films was just an ordinary independent film community established in a city, Jogjakarta, with no film industry, no tools, and no human resources. There was only enthusiasm and passion. Fourcolours founders believed that it was their responsibility to create a film atmosphere in Jogjakarta, their hometown. After several years, there is now a lot of youngsters developing film communities, watching, discussing, making or distributing independent films. Since its creation in 2001, Fourcolours Films have been actively producing short films that where awarded in festivals like Rotterdam, Busan, Hamburg, Tokyo... After ten years of processing, Fourcolours Films started producing feature films in 2012 with Ifa ISFANSYAH productions ONE DAY WHEN THE RAIN FALLS (Ifa ISFANSYAH, IFFR, 2013), SITI (Eddie CAHYONO, TELLURIDE 2015), TURAH (Wicaksono Wisnu LEGOWO, Indonesian Official Entry for OSCAR 2018), THE SEEN AND UNSEEN (Kamila ANDINI, TORONTO IFF 2017) and MEMORIES OF MY BODY (Garin NUGROHO, VENICE Orizzonti 2018). The involvement and activism carried out by Fourcolours Films in Jogjakarta inspires many new filmmakers in Indonesia. Fourcolours Films continues supporting local filmmakers and producing them.
