The results of the judging up to this stage are the results of the basic stage of the competition whose quality will be tested by the final jury. In addition, the Audience Choice category is a space for community participation, especially film lovers. So, it must be facilitated and managed in a broad community space,” said FFI 2023 Judging Committee Chairman, Garin Nugroho.
