About Asian Film Archive Presents Southeast Asian Digital Cinema
The advent of the digital cinema new wave is here. At its helm are people closer to us than we think – filmmakers from Southeast Asia who have garnered accolades at film festivals regionally and abroad. The Asian Film Archive Presents Southeast Asian Digital Cinema.

Over a ten-week period from August to October, five acclaimed filmmaking groups from Southeast Asian nations will be showcased. Filmmakers representing these digital film groups will be the focus in a bi-weekly series of events. Programmes to be held in each series comprise screenings of works by the group in focus, and a Round Table talk, an In Conversation session and a filmmaking workshop by the representatives from the group. These will culminate in a symposium at the end of the year with all five of the featured film representatives.
About Asian Film Archive
The Asian Film Archive is a non-governmental organisation founded to preserve the rich film heritage of Singapore and Asian Cinema to encourage scholarly research on film, to promote a wider critical appreciation of this art form and to build cultural value of Asian films. Amongst other things, we do outreach programmes through our Moving Minds Project and carry out film preservation with our Reel Emergency
Project. As an important nexus, we bring together the various segments of the Asian film community in order to open and enrich new intellectual, educational, and creative spaces.

The Asian Film Archive has built up social capital and a large network linking important Asian filmmakers and scholars. We are governed by an independent board of directors and advised by an international board. The Asian Film Archive is an affiliate of the prestigious International Federation of Film Archives (FIAF) and a member of the Southeast Asia-Pacific Audio Visual Archives Association (SEAPAVAA). Our collection includes works by some of the most renowned Asian filmmakers in the region.
