Events: Asian Film Archive symposium
The two-day symposium is the culmination of the student-led SEADC series and will feature six selected papers by students who have critically analysed the societal and cinematic issues raised in Asian films.
Six short-listed films made during the filmmaking workshops will also be screened and judged, along with other screening school partners who will exhibit their publicity campaigns and share their marketing strategies. Both the papers and projects will be judged by award-winning filmmakers, critics and scholars who will also be speaking at the symposium. More information on the speakers can be found on the AFA’s website.
Part of the SEADC is the Cineodeon project, an informal student-led cinema chain of 11 educational institutions screening independent films. It reached a total audience of 1,628 people, and raised $1,982.90 in total.
The Inter-school filmmaking workshops also produced a total of 21 film projects completed by 60 students under the mentorship of the filmmakers. The full schedule of the two-day symposium can be found online, and registration is $20 per head, inclusive of lunch and tea for both days.
