100% Manusia aims to facilitate the changes in our society, raising awareness and support human empowerment for a better future. The 100% Manusia committee is powered by voluntary works carried out by highly skilled and dedicated individuals from diverse religious, ethnic, education, and professional backgrounds. These goodhearted volunteers are determined to assemble a medium, space, and platform where people can receive information, learn, and share their experiences related to diversity through arts within a positive environment of the uprising creative industry of Indonesia.
100% Manusia Film Festival based in Jakarta, Indonesia.
The international film festival focuses in human right themes, encompassing gender, diversity and minority issues. Diversity has always been celebrated in Indonesia and we feel that it is something that we have to nurture. It all started from a social movement by volunteers with different backgrounds. We thought that it was time to look past individual labels and embrace our common ground: humanity. Our individual self makes us unique and of course, we should not lose our sense of self. However, we should also acknowledge that we are all a part of a bigger community, the human race community. 100% Manusia (or 100% Human in English) means we believe that all humans are equal and should be treated with respect .
