Southeast Asia Short Documentary Film Screening and Discussion

Japan

The Japan Foundation Asia Center is co-organizing "Visual Documentary Project" with the Center for Southeast Asian Studies (CSEAS), Kyoto University. The project aims to offer a platform for Asian Filmmakers in the region to express their realities through documentaries and introduce them to a broader audience.

"Politics in Everyday Life" as the theme of 2016
This year, we called for short documentaries under the theme of "Politics in Everyday Life in Southeast Asia" overviewing various aspects of political expression in everyday life.

Award winning director Rithy Panh from Cambodia and Professor Kenji Ishizaka joined as juries to select short documentaries.

Admission is free, and directors and team members from Southeast Asia will have a talk and discussion after the screening.

We received 75 wonderful works from across Southeast Asia. Out of 75 works, following successful documentaries were selected. We will screen those works in Kyoto and Tokyo this December. Also, directors and team members will be invited to Japan for the screening and have a talk and discussion with commentators. We look forward for your participation!
