In order to address the questions of diversity and coexistence in the context of Southeast Asia, the Center for Southeast Asian Studies, Kyoto University has initiated "Visual Documentary project" which explicitly examines everyday life through a visual approach since 2012. This project aims to use visual forms of expression to complement the growing literature that exists on Southeast Asian societies. From 2014, the Japan Foundation Asia Center joins this project as co-organizer to help widely promote the richness of Southeast Asian cultures to people in Japan.
As of 2016, the project has linked up with numerous film schools in the region to help strengthen the documentary filmmaking network.
