Breakout: Elevating Southeast Asian Stories to the World
The session will discuss the significance of a collaboration between Southeast Asian filmmakers with the rest of the world in broadening space for their voices to represent their stories, while at the same time understanding the global market to achieve international appeals. An array of initiatives has been set in motion to endorse international collaborations. The session will ask questions on how worldwide collaborations elevate regional stories and what are the “danger zones” to be avoided, to guarantee that the authenticity of the filmmakers’ original perspective will not be diluted in the collaboration.
