SEAFIC talk in Phnom Penh

Ideal Pathway toward Feature Debut for Shorts Filmmakers

(This event will be in English language)
So you are a shorts filmmaker with aspirations to make a debut feature film that travels around the globe. But with financing becoming harder and harder to find or necessitating severe artistic compromise, and international funds seem like a distant dream, how can one make this tricky transition? This talk shall propose an ideal pathway for young filmmakers via international labs, markets and festivals to achieve this goal.

SEAFIC Executive Director will present a 2 hour talk "Ideal Pathway toward Feature Debut for Shorts Filmmakers" at Bophana Audiovisual Resource Center, Screening Room in Phnom Penh on 29th August 2018 starting at 5:30pm.


SEAFIC (Southeast Asia Fiction Film Lab) is a pioneering script lab created for Southeast Asian filmmakers in order to strengthen the quality of feature-length fiction films from the region. Each year SEAFIC invites 1st, 2nd and 3rd-time filmmakers to work with a script consultant and international experts for 8 months to develop their projects. It shall conduct three lab sessions: first in Chiang Mai in late February, the second in Chiang Mai in early July, and the final session, called SEAFIC Open House, in early November. The parallel producers’ lab, called SEAFICxPAS, is run jointly with Festival des 3 Continents’ Produire au Sud.
