CSO Event in Japan

The Center for Southeast Asian Studies (CSEAS), Kyoto University is calling for documentaries for its 10th Visual Documentary Project. This year’s topic is “Death/Life in Southeast Asia.” We welcome any documentaries that deal with issues relating to any aspect relating to this year’s theme.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s selection will be screened as an online event. CSEAS continues to express solidarity with filmmakers in the region during this difficult time.

1. Applicants must be citizens of Southeast Asia or Japan.
2. Documentaries should be no longer than 30 minutes.
3. Applicants should make sure they have permission from any subjects that appear in the movies.
4. Documentaries should include English subtitles. Translation and subtitling is also the responsibility of applicants.
*Selected documentaries will be screened in their original languages with both Japanese and English subtitles. However, documentaries that are in English will only have Japanese subtitles added and vise versa.

The deadline for submission of entries is on Tuesday, August 31, 2021.
