Human Flows | call for documentaries


The Center for Southeast Asian Studies (CSEAS), Kyoto University in partnership with the Japan Foundation Asian Center is calling for short documentary submissions from young filmmakers who are citizens of ASEAN or Japan on the theme Human Flows - Movement in Southeast Asia.

Movement is a fundamental reality of human societies. In Southeast Asia how does it influence individuals, families, communities and nations? What journeys do people take as they move within, across and out of the region? What are their reasons to move and what stories do they have to tell? What experiences define movement in the region? And how will the region’s governments manage flows on the eve of the birth of ASEAN Economic Community?

The Center for Southeast Asian Studies (CSEAS) is accepting short documentaries from young filmmakers who are citizens of ASEAN nations and Japan to reflect on Human Flows in Southeast Asia.

Submissions of up to 30 minutes can be on any topic that touches upon Southeast Asian’s experiences of human movement in the region. Themes can include economic migration, movement between countries in the region, pilgrimages, migration due to political crisis or environmental degradation, cultural influences and borderless journeys/wanderings.

Deadline for submission: December 20, 2015
Finalist Announcement: January 12, 2016

Five documentaries will be selected for screening in Kyoto and Tokyo, and translated into Japanese/English.
