Runner up to the feature competition, winning The Silver Hanoman is Shireen Seno’s Nevrous Translation whilst Yuda Kurniawan also brought home a NETPAC award for The Song of Grassroots. Shireen's film is a fantastical tale about a young girl, who finds a pen that translate the thoughts and feelings of nervous people. The Song of Grassroots, on the other hand, delves deeply into politics and Human Rights violations in Indonesia.

The short film award, titled the Blencong Award was awarded to Facing Death with Wirecutter, an Iraqi documentary by Sawar Abdullah, exploring Kurdistan Peshmergan forces working with basic and simple tools to defuse ISIS mines and bombs.

JAFF also celebrated a slew of Indonesian young talent, awarding Petualangan Menangkap Petir by Kuntz Agus with the Best Indonesian Film as Hanung Bramantyo won Best Director. Best Script was awarded to Andibachtiar Yusuf’s oddball Love for Sale and Amalia T.S bagged home the award for Best Cinematography for Aruna and Lidahnya.
