Started in Central Jakarta, continued to West Jakarta, and now ready to explore South Jakarta. JIPFest, the nomadic photo festival, will host its third edition in Blok M, South Jakarta on 9-25 September 2022.

Throughout 17 days, JIPFest 2022 will present 16 programs in several spots around Blok M, including public parks, historical sites, galleries, and a performance theatre. The multiple locations are in line with the festival’s initial vision to bring photography closer to the public.

Blok M is chosen for its unique character as a neighborhood, and its many attractions for tourists. The area is known as a legendary shopping, culinary, and nightlife district in South Jakarta. The area houses one of Jakarta’s main terminals and is within the Transjakarta bus and MRT routes – making it an accessible transportation hub.

The third edition of JIPFest holds Revival as a theme. In 2022, the world is recovering. Nations are rebuilding their economies, people rebuilding lives. By taking Revival as its theme, JIPFest aims to reflect the spirit of the time to rise from low points.

We will be delivering new updates on venues, programs and guest speakers gradually. Check our website regularly, and follow @jipfest on Facebook and Instagram for the latest on the festival.
