8th Southeast Asian Cinemas Conference set for July 7-10 in Salaya

The eighth Association of Southeast Asian Cinemas Conference returns to Thailand this year, running from Monday, July 7 to Thursday, July 10 at the Thai Film Archive in Salaya, Nakhom Pathom.

The conference is themed "“Codes, Kitsch, Camp: Genre in/and Southeast Asian Cinemas”. Here's more from the SEA Conference blog:

Issues of genre have had long-term and continuing importance for the film studies field, but the concept has received little serious critical attention in the specific context of Southeast Asian film. The 8th Association for Southeast Asian Cinemas conference will therefore be interested in interrogating in the broadest terms the relevance and usefulness of the concept for the analysis of Southeast Asian cinema. We seek proposals both for papers that address concepts of genre, in a Southeast Asian context, from a theoretical perspective and for studies of specific Southeast Asian genre trends with industrial and/or textual emphases.

Read on for possible topics.

The full conference program and details will be announced around May or June. Also, registration is free for Thais.
