Southeast Asia’s first ever script lab – the Southeast Asian Fiction Film Lab (SEAFIC) – is launching in Thailand and Singapore this year with support from the Purin Foundation, Singapore Film Commission and French Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Each year, SEAFIC will select five Southeast Asian filmmakers – working on their first, second or third feature film scripts – to work with script consultants over a period of nine months. The filmmakers will be invited to three lab sessions in Chiangmai, Thailand (October 23-30), Chiangmai again in late February 2017 and Singapore in late June 2017. During the final session in Singapore, the five filmmakers will take part in a pitch session, after which one project will be awarded a cash prize of $15,000.

SEAFIC’s selection committees and award juries will comprise leading industry figures such as Cannes Film Festival’s Christian Jeune, producer Shozo Ichiyama and Thai filmmaker Pen-ek Ratanaruang. A representative from TorinoFilmLab will take part in the SEAFIC selection process.
