Thailand launches Asean artist-in-residence screenwriting program

Producer-director Pantham Tongsang is heading up a new "artist-in-residence" program by the Thai Culture Ministry that will have four screenwriters from neighboring Southeast Asian countries stay in Thailand for one month while they work on a movie script.

Here's the deal, according to Film Business Asia:

At the end of their stay, which is fully-financed by the Thai government, each writer is required to have researched and produced a ten-page treatment for a feature film that explores the relationship between Thailand and his or her own country.

Head over to Film Biz Asia for more details.

Pantham is the director of 2004's social drama Ai-Fak and the Mid-Road Gang talking-dog comedies, as well as producer of Apichatpong Weerasethakul's Syndromes and a Century and Tropical Malady. His latest directorial effort, the romance Love Syndrome รักโง่ๆ, is due out on October 10.
