Indie filmmakers recruited to tutor Bangkok, Jakarta academy sessions
Mofilm, the outfit that puts on short-film contests worldwide and serves as an online social network for filmmakers, has recruited guest tutors for the upcoming sessions of the Academy for Southeast Asian Filmmakers.
Set for Jakarta from May 11 to 13 and Bangkok from May 15 to 18, Mofilm's Academy for Southeast Asian Filmmakers has tapped established local indie film talents.
In Jakarta, the sessions will be led by director Mouly Surya (What They Don't Talk About When They Talk About Love, Fiksi) and Sheila Timothy, a producer whose credits include a pair of far-out freak-outs by Joko Anwar, Pintu Terlarang (The Forbidden Door) and Modus Anomali (Ritual).
Bangkok's sessions will have writer-director Kongdej Jaturanrasmee (Tang Wong, So Be It) and producer-director Pimpaka Towira (The Truth Be Told: The Cases Against Supinya Klangnarong, The Songs of Rice).
Other big names are expected to follow. Meanwhile, the March 31 deadline for applications is fast approaching. Check it out at mofilm.com/ASAF.
