To introduce more closely the uniqueness of Kepulauan Seribu (the Thousand Islands), the Regency Government of Kepulauan Seribu will make community-based films. The short films are planned to be starred by local children. "It is hoped that the audition process will begin in December and that one film and one book will be made from each island."
However, before getting a role in the films, the local children will first go through an audition process. "The audition process will hopefully begin in December and from each island, we will make one film and one book,” Regent of Kepulauan Seribu said on Monday (30/11).
Budi said that in the modern era with the current development of information technology, promotion on tourism should not only be manual, but also take advantage of films and social media. "There are many islands of which the image has been improved as an impact of films, we will do the same thing. We will therefore build and improve the infrastructure,” he stated. Budi added, he hoped that through the films, more tourists would visit Kepulauan Seribu to increase economy of the local people.
