The Indonesianna Film 2022 Market Project is a series of the Indonesianna Film 2022 Program. This activity brings together a number of the best film scenario projects with a number of investors, both domestic and foreign.
Ahmad Mahendra further stated that with the existence of Indonesianna Film 2022, Indonesia has a number of the best film scripts that have gone through a selection process for one year to be offered to investors.

"Actually, this program is very profitable for investors because they do not need to spend money on research, for the preparation of the manuscript; it has been taken over by the state without intervening. It's really purely from an idea developed by the author, who has own system following the flow of the industry,” he said.
