About ...and Action! Asia

The Asia Center carries out ...and Action! Asia: Exchange Program for Students in Film Studies to encourage the deepening of mutual understanding and fostering a new generation of filmmakers in the Asian countries. The program welcomes students who are interested in achieving collaborative works in filmmaking and expanding their networks in the region, and using their experience for their studies and future careers.
