The 2nd Lifescapes Southeast Asian Film Festival thanks all participants, volunteers, speakers, and staff for another informative and interactive program!
Thank you, once again, to everyone for participating in Lifescapes 2!
A lifescape is an expanse – life, livelihood, and reality – that can be seen in a single view.
The Lifescapes Southeast Asian Film Festival screens contemporary films – documentary, docu-drama, or dramatized – to showcase thoughtful work with a social conscience. The festival aims to raise awareness of film culture and filmmakers of mainland Southeast Asia who make meaningful social commentary with their work – showing the beautiful without flinching from grim reality.
Selected films will explore regional issues within mainland Southeast Asia: Cambodia, Lao, Burma/Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam. Lifescapes is entirely interactive, offering directors, producers, media representatives, NGO representatives, and audience members the opportunity to join together in post-screening Q&A sessions, panel discussions, and evening social functions throughout the program.
Organized through the South East Asian Institute of Global Studies (SEAIGS) at Payap University in Chiang Mai, all activities will take place on the Payap University Mae Khao Campus (behind Big C Extra) in the Sirindhorn Learning Resource Center. All activities on our campus are FREE and open to the public.
