Southeast Asia program & Symposium
The current status and future of Southeast Asian short films

Having achieved high levels of economic growth in recent years, “center of growth” Southeast Asia has received much attention from the international community. The Japan Foundation Asia Center was established in April 2014 to promote cultural exchange and collaborative opportunities between Japan and fellow Asian nations. In a joint venture with our festival, SSFF & ASIA and the Asia Center launched a screening program and symposium in 2015 featuring 11 southeast countries to last over the next two years. Last year, we screened works from Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Singapore, Timor-Leste, and the Philippines, and invited filmmakers from the film industries of these countries to speak at our symposium. This year, our program and symposium will feature short films from Vietnam, Brunei, Thailand, Malaysia, and Myanmar, and will provide insight into what Southeast Asia is up to “now!”
