The Viking Film Fund, established by Viking Sunset Studios in Bali, aims to bolster top-quality Indonesian filmmaking with an international audience, providing a platform for emerging talents to thrive. Mr. Bo H Holmgreen, CEO and owner of VIKING SUNSET STUDIOS, expressed his enthusiasm for the event, stating, “This year, we have traversed the world’s most prestigious film festivals, from Cannes to Venice to now the Berlinale, adapting to the evolving landscape of the movie industry. We are committed to investing in exceptional talent, state-of-the-art equipment, and breathtaking studio locations, such as our beach-front property in Bali, to foster innovation and creativity.” Mr. Holmgreen continued, “Indonesia, with its vibrant culture and youthful demographic, holds immense potential for cinematic excellence. Through the Viking Sunset Film Fund, we are proud to allocate over IDR 3 billion in cash and values to support compelling local film projects, showcasing Indonesia’s rich cultural heritage and amazing beauty to the world.”

Notably, Mr. Holmgreen will be flying directly from the Berlin Film Festival to Jakarta for the rescheduled Viking Film Fund event, adding to the anticipation surrounding the awards ceremony. His journey back from Berlin, amidst the hustle and bustle of one of the world’s most renowned film events, symbolizes the studio’s global reach and significance of the Viking Film Fund. Continuing his remarks, Mr. Holmgreen emphasized the importance of Indonesia’s rich cultural heritage and the country’s youthful demographic in shaping the future of filmmaking. “Indonesia, with its vibrant culture and emerging young talents, holds immense potential for cinematic excellence,” he stated. “Through the Viking Sunset Film Fund, we are proud to allocate over IDR Billions in cash and values to support such compelling local film projects, showcasing Indonesia’s rich cultural heritage to the world.”

The Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy of Indonesia, Sandiaga Uno, is very familiar with the multiplier effect of the film industry to accelerate economic recovery and contribute to community empowerment. Minister Uno added: ““We are excited about these efforts, as we agree with Mr. Holmgreen that the Indonesian population of 27 years average has so much to offer the world. This new Indonesia with talent, incredible nature back drops, high tech culture, and superb creativity will attract film producers to our gorgeous country, and we support Viking Sunset Studios efforts to bring film makers here and promote Indonesian films abroad.”

The Viking Sunset Studios team, in collaboration with associated charity offices of Scholars Of Sustenance, will convene on February 24th to hear the pitching from the top 20 submissions to a distinguished panel of judges, including Maya Lubis Maya Lubis, Film Producer and production Consultant at KAYA productions, Bella Pangabean, renowned Director of Photography, and other esteemed industry professionals.

The Danish Ambassador Sten Frimodt Nielsen said: “From Denmark’s stunning coastlines to Bali’s gorgeous beaches and mountains, Danish creativity now meets Indonesian moviemaking at Vikings Sunset Studios Bali operations. As the Danish Ambassador, I’m excited about this cultural fusion, starting with this Danish-inspired Viking Film Fund Awards ceremony, uniting great talents from both nations and creating wonderful opportunities in partnership.”
