Purin Pictures

Purin Pictures is a film fund that supports independent cinema in Southeast Asia.

Started in 2017 under the Purin Foundation, the fund looks for artists and organisations that are doing unique and essential work in a region that lacks adequate governmental support.  Managed by Anocha Suwichakornpong and Aditya Assarat, their funding programmes cover film production, film post-production, and film-related activities.

Purin Pictures defines the countries of Southeast Asia as Cambodia, East Timor, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Brunei, Singapore, Thailand, and Viet Nam. To qualify for funding, the director of the film must be a citizen or resident of one of these countries.  Furthermore, the main production company must be registered in one of these countries.
