Purpose: The purpose of this study is to investigate the forms of events that occur in a film festival where the audience is at the center of the dynamics of the contemporary environment.


Theoretical reference: Nowadays, the development of the practice of curation is not only seen in activities at museums and art exhibitions, but also in the practice of other activities, such as film festivals. The selection process, work selection, and archiving are all key steps in the process of fusing ideas with the aesthetic form that will be shown. Thus, this study aims at exploring the events form where the audience is at the center of the dynamics of the contemporary environment in a film festival.


Method: This study used a survey method involving 306 students with film concentrations from five state universities in Indonesia. The data were analyzed using Heteroscedasticity Test, Normality Test, One Sample Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, Multiple Regression Analysis, T-Test, and Simultaneous Test (F Test).


Result and Conclusion: This study revealed that several factors influence perceptions and learning motivation shown by students in the practice of curating and reviewing films in the organization of film festivals.


Implication of research: Based on the results of this study, the influence was considered insignificant; the researchers obtained 7.8% of the simultaneous effect of the variables of perception and learning motivation on the practice of organizing film festivals in Indonesia.


Originality/value: In this study, the researchers seek to investigate new cultural forms in film festival programs, especially film festivals in Indonesia, to help them capture social concepts as inspiration for helping audiences understand the point of view at the film festival, as well as appreciation from the audience, stakeholders and filmmakers in exploring the form of events in the field during the film festival.
