The idea to organize an international film festival in Jakarta came from the movie lover, Shanty Harmayn and Natacha Devillers, who in 1999 worked in Salto Films and live in Jakarta.
At that time other countries already have an international film festival, the Singapore International Film Festival (SIFF) has aged 12 years, while the Pusan International Film Festival (Korea) although only three years old began to attract attention among Asian and world cinema.
Thailand and the Philippines have also launched their international film festivals: Bangkok International Film Festival (September 1998) and Cinemanila (July 1999). Shanty Harmayn and Natacha Devillers decided to realize the Jakarta International Film Festival (JIFFest) in November 1999.
