Bali Adds River Conema to Island's Attractions

A brand new river cinema opened in Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia, on May, 25 lures all movie-lovers outdoors. 

The cinema is located on Tukad Badung River straddled by two large traditional markets of Denpasar, namely Badung and Kumbasari. Once a month, Bioskop Tukad will screen documentary films by the river. Being a part of the annual Denpasar Documentary Film Festival (DDFF), it aims at popularization of documentary movies among general public.

During the first night the public was shown several documentaries that were featured in the last year’s DFFF program and managed to become the finalists at the Organization of World Heritage Cities (OWHC)’s video competition: Layang-Layang (Kites) by Resha Arundari, Tradisi Turunan (Hereditary Tradition) by Putu Sathyana Rayana and Penempa Bara (Bara Forge) by Sari Ning Gayatri.

The whole project is supported by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), the Denpasar Creative Board and Denpasar administration. With the help of the new river cinema the organizers also hope to attract local residents' and visitors' attention to the environments issues connected to Tukad Badung River. During the last several years, the administration of Denpasar have been putting a lot of effort to make the river a popular recreation area though this initiative faces a lot of challenges including unlawful waste disposal that makes riverfront unattractive.
