A talented female director named Kamila Andini is also widely involved in the film industry. His directorial debut began with the film "Secrets Behind Cita Rasa" (2002). In 2011, Kamila Andini won the Citra Cup in the Best Original Story category for her film "The Mirror Never Lies" (2011), which also won international awards such as the Tokyo International Film Festival, Hong Kong International Film Festival, and Berlin International Film Festival.

The next filmmaker is Luthesa Sadhewa. This young actress started her career in a short film entitled "The Junk Society" (2012). This Dutch Literature graduate from the University of Indonesia has acted in many films throughout her career, and has played an active role in the Indonesian film industry, such as being a brand ambassador for the Jakarta Film Week event in 2023.

He has starred in blockbuster films such as Miracle in Cell no. 7 (2022), When It Stops Here (2023), and 172 Days (2023).
