OPEN CALL for Entries Lifescapes Southeast Asian Film Festival Chiang Mai, Thailand

Lifescapes Southeast Asian Film Festival Chiang Mai, Thailand
2 - 5 February 2012

Submission Deadline: 31 October 2011

The South East Asian Institute of Global Studies (SEAIGS) at Payap University is proud to announce the second Lifescapes Southeast Asian Film Festival to be held 2-5 February 2012!

A lifescape is an expanse ? life, livelihood, and reality ? that can be seen in a single view. The Lifescapes Southeast Asian Film Festival screens contemporary films ? documentary, docu-drama, or dramatized ?
to showcase thoughtful work with a social conscience. The festival hopes to raise awareness of film culture and filmmakers of mainland Southeast Asia who make meaningful social commentary with their work ?
showing the beautiful without flinching from grim reality.

Selected films will explore regional issues and topics within mainland Southeast Asia: Cambodia, Lao, Burma/Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam.
The program will be interactive, offering directors, producers, media representatives, NGO representatives, and audience members the opportunity to join together in post-screening Q&A sessions, panel discussions, and evening social functions throughout the program.
Lifescapes is an all-inclusive experience and we are looking for inspiring films for its second run. Wherever you may be based, if you have a film focused on one of the 5 mainland SE Asian countries, we encourage your submission. In addition, this year we hope to include more work from filmmakers of the Mekong Sub-Region and highly encourage local submissions.

For more information, visit the Lifescapes website. The deadline for submissions is 31 October 2011.

For inquiries, please email lifescapes@seaigs.org. Feel free to distribute this announcement. We look forward to receiving and viewing your submissions!

Sincerely,

The Organizing Team
