Forum Lenteng a non-profit egalitarian community created in 2003 by communication students, artists, researchers, and cultural observers, as the freedom of making media was expanding with the Reformation Era and as Indonesia was decentralizing. Forum Lenteng was established to decentralize and develop knowledge on media and visual art of its members, by doing production, documentation, research, and open distribution. On the other hand, the community realized that appreciation was missing in the ecosystem of cinema in Indonesia, and Forum Lenteng works to fill this void with writings, critics, and events. The development of this knowledge then becomes the foundation for the community to discuss social.
