Dressed in a traditional batik shirt, brown pants, and a gray flat cap, Slamet Ambari went on stage to accept his Tempo Film Festival award at the XXI Epicentrum movie theater in Kuningan, South Jakarta, last Monday. Slamet, who played Jadag in the film Turah, was chosen as Tempo’s Best Actor of 2017. "Is this real? My God, I’m grateful to Ifa and Wisnu," he said. "I’m earnest in my acting, but since this is being given to me, I accept. Thank you," said Slamet in a thick Javanese-Tegal accent when receiving the award.

From Tirang to the Sumbawa Valley
This year has been a good year for Indonesian cinema, with many films winning awards at prestigious film festivals and receiving warm welcome from critics across the globe. We have also seen a phenomenal horror film that has broken the genre’s cliches and been watched by over four million viewers. Young filmmakers are pushing boundaries, producing films outside the mainstream, from the realist to the surreal. Since 2011, Tempo has been in the tradition of choosing each year’s best films and supporting categories. This year, for the first time, we have taken these awards on stage in the Tempo Film Festival to show our appreciation for those who have added color to Indonesian cinema.
