EDWIN (1978, Indonesia) was educated in graphic design in his home town Surabaya before moving to Jakarta to study film. At first, he made short films only, but soon Edwin expanded his body of work with feature films, music videos and documentaries. In 2005, his Kara, the Daughter of a Tree became the first Indonesia short film ever invited to the Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes. Edwin’s feature debut Blind Pig Who Wants to Fly (2008) was awarded the FIPRESCI Prize in Rotterdam. In 2014, he returns to the port city as jury member in the Hivos Tiger Awards Competition.
