Symposium: Archives, Activism, Aesthetics CCA

symposium- archives, activism, aesthetics

Glasgow Short Film Festival and Southeast Asian Cinemas Research Network

16 – 17 March, 2018

CCA, 350 Sauchiehall Street, G2 3JD

Glasgow Short Film Festival and Southeast Asian Cinemas Research Network present two days of free screenings and discussions open to anyone with an interest in filmmaking, political activism or Southeast Asia.

Southeast Asian filmmakers have increasingly turned to archive footage in order to explore the relationship between the colonial and Cold War past and the politics of the present day. With keynote talks from Professor Bliss Cua Lim (UC Irvine) and Dr May Adadol Ingawanij (University of Westminster) and participation from members of grassroots filmmaking collectives and organisations in Southeast Asia including Hanoi DocLab, Vietnam; Forum Lenteng, Indonesia; Anti-Archive, Cambodia, Save Myanmar Cinema and the Thai Film Archive, this free symposium will explore the links between archives, activism and aesthetics.

This event is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the University of St Andrews and has been organised in collaboration with the Association of Southeast Asian Cinemas Conference (ASEACC). The event is also supported by the Goethe Institut Glasgow.
