Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia (SSFF & ASIA), festival film berkualifikasi
ajang tahunan Academy Awards (R) dan salah satu festival film pendek bertaraf
internasional terbesar di Asia, tahun ini bekerja sama kembali dengan Japan
Foundation Asia Center, yang telah banyak melakukan berbagai proyek pertukaran
budaya dengan tujuan membangun pemahaman bersama antara Jepang dan
negara-negara Asia lainnya, dengan mengadakan program simposium dan pemutaran
film pendek yang menyoroti Asia Tenggara. Tahun lalu, kami memperkenalkan video
pertama simposium yang menampilkan para profesional di bidang perfilman dari
Indonesia, Kamboja, Singapura dan Laos.

Video terbaru simposium yang diselenggarakan pada event tahun ini, yang
menghadirkan berbagai profesional di bidang perfilman dari Thailand, Vietnam,
Malaysia dan Myanmar, saat ini telah tersedia dalam versi lengkap melalui
website SSFF & ASIA project :
http://www.shortshorts.org/southeast_asia/index-en.php

Pada event tahun lalu, simposium mengangkat empat topik utama, di antaranya :
1) Bagaimana film pendek diposisikan dan dipandang dalam industri perfilman di
masing-masing negara; 2) Bagaimana situasi produksi film pendek di tiap-tiap
negara; 3) Bagaimana keahlian para pembuat film pendatang baru dipupuk di
masing-masing negara; dan 4) Bagaimana negara-negara Asia Tenggara dapat
bekerja sama dalam mendukung satu sama lain di masa yang akan datang. Dari
topic-topik ini, berbagai hal dibahas, karena keempat negara Asia Tenggara yang
berpartisipasi tersebut memiliki kondisi politik, agama dan ekonomi yang
berbeda-beda. Di Malaysia, misalnya, film pendek seringkali dibuat hanya untuk
kebutuhan iklan. Sementara itu, di Myanmar, film dokumenter pendek lebih mudah
dibuat karena budget produksinya lebih rendah, dan sebagainya. Selain itu,
terdapat kolom tamu yang dipublikasikan secara rutin di website proyek di mana
esai-esai dari para penulis tamu yang membahas mengenai produksi film di Asia
Tenggara diunggah.

International short film festival — Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia 2016

TOKYO, Sept. 20, 2016 (Antara/Kyodo JBN-AsiaNet) —

– Full Video for Symposium Focusing on Southeast Asian Film Industry “Now” Available Online –

Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia (SSFF & ASIA), a film festival qualifying for the annual Academy Awards (R) and one of Asia’s largest international short film festivals, has joined hands again this year with the Japan Foundation Asia Center, which carries out various cultural exchange projects with the objective of fostering mutual understanding between Japan and other Asian nations, to establish a symposium program and screen short films that focus on Southeast Asia. Last year, we introduced the first video of a symposium featuring film professionals from Indonesia, Cambodia, Singapore and Laos. http://www.shortshorts.org/southeast_asia2015/en/
The new video recording of a symposium at this year’s event, which welcomed film professionals from Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia and Myanmar, is now available in full video via the SSFF & ASIA project website: http://www.shortshorts.org/southeast_asia/index-en.php

As of last year, the symposium addressed four primary topics: 1) How short films are 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. From these topics, various areas were discussed, as the four participating Southeast Asian countries have different political, religious and economic conditions. In Malaysia, for example, short films are often made for advertisement purposes. Meanwhile, in Myanmar, short documentaries are easier to be made because of their cheaper budgets, etc. 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.
