Basuki admitted very supporting the film industry in Indonesia. He assessed, currently film that worked by Indonesian the movie makers is able to compete with any other country in the world.

"Indonesian film now is qualified, such as Warkop DKI Reborn that has attracted 5 million viewers. Which is why it must be supported fully," he stated, at City Hall, Thursday (9/22).

Related with 2016 FFI, he will strongly support it. Moreover, this year, it will be held in Jakarta.

"Film in Indonesia must be maintained, we must support. FFI in Jakarta must be a momentum," he stressed.
