Simposium ini membahas empat topik utama: 1) Bagaimana film pendek ditempatkan
dan dipandang dalam industri perfilman di masing-masing negara; 2) Bagaimana
kondisi produksi film pendek di tiap-tiap negara; 3) Bagaimana keterampilan
dari setiap pembuat film yang ada dan yang akan datang dibina di masing-masing
negara; 4) Bagaimana negara-negara Asia Tenggara dapat bekerja sama dalam
mendukung satu sama lain ke depannya. Berbagai bidang terkait pendanaan film
dan eksploitasi film juga dibahas, termasuk tentang pentingnya mengangkat
isu-isu seperti hak asasi manusia dan kesehatan saat hendak mencari dana
produksi dari NGO. Para panelis melaporkan bahwa jumlah produksi film pendek di
negara-negara yang menjadi peserta mengalami peningkatan dengan semakin
tersedianya kamera digital dan perangkat lunak untuk penyuntingan, meskipun
tingkat pertumbuhan ekonomi dan sistem pendukung yang disediakan oleh negara
berbeda di masing-masing negara.

The symposium addressed four primary topics: 1) How short film is positioned and considered by the film industry in each country; 2) What the situation is of short film production in each country; 3) How the skills of up-and-coming filmmakers are being nurtured in each country; and 4) How Southeast Asian countries can work together to support each other in the future. Various areas relating to film funding and film exploitation were covered, including the importance of addressing issues such as human rights and health care when looking to raise production funds from NGOs. Panelists reported that the number of short film productions in countries across the board is rising thanks to the widespread availability of digital cameras and editing software, although rates of economic growth and the support system provided by the state differs for each country.

Furthermore, there is a guest column published regularly on the project website where essays by guest writers discussing film production in Southeast Asia are uploaded.
