Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Wishnutama wants to make it easier to shoot Hollywood-style movies in Indonesia, reasoning that movies could expose the beauty of Indonesia to potential visitors across the globe.
“The [permit procedures] should be simplified, as [movie shooting] is a form of investment in Indonesia. [Permits] should be issued with convenience, and we will simplify [the process],” Wishnutama was quoted as saying by kompas.com on Tuesday.
He went on to say that other ministries also had to be involved to ensure easy permit applications for filmmaking.
“This is based on the experience of people who have asked for such permission,” said Wishnutama, adding that he had once helped a Hollywood filmmaker obtain the permit for filming in Indonesia, and it had been very difficult.
