Four Brawijaya University students who are members of the Rollab.com team initiated an alternative cinema that aims to convey information and promote local cinema. Rollab.com as an exhibition and distribution platform will play indie films by young Indonesian filmmakers who carry many positive moral messages and have not received much attention. These films are certainly no less slick than the films that play in big cinema Indonesia, where the screening of these films will take advantage of public space such as cafes that are enough in the city of Malang and close to the community.
The low appreciation of the work of independent Indonesian filmmakers is of concern to the team consisting of Zaneta Azzahra Izdihar (FEB), Fadrian Dwiki Maulanda (FEB), Rais Aulia Humam (FEB), and Surya Daren Hafizh (FILKOM). They then bring Rollab.com to participate in UB Entrepreneurship Student Creativity Program (PKM-K) Brawijaya University. Zaneta as chairman of the Rollab.com team said “Many cafes that can be utilized to display indie films that Indonesia has, so young people can use time to hang out while watching indie films that actually really good quality and it turns out from Indonesia . ”
Zaneta said that Rollab.com idea has been plan since long, “Rollab.com is already running in Malang, but it is not big enough.” It is expected that with the presence of Rollab.com, Indonesian indie films will be more uplifted and the community is also more facilitated to get information about Indie films. In addition, Zaneta hopes Rollab.com can re-create the name of Brawijaya Unversity in PIMNAS. For the future, Rollab.com teams will do their best and make more activities for Rollab.com to exist and deliver positive messages to the public through the movies being played.
