The 4th Southeast Asian Cinemas conference (2007) emphasizes the intersection of theory, practice, and ethics. How do we, as film scholars, position ourselves within this debate/discourse? What ethical responsibilities should filmmakers have towards their subjects of representation? Is there a role for the film scholar as public intellectual? How might we begin to approach and discuss the ethics and politics of film criticism? What might film curators take into consideration when they select and preserve films for the archive?

Each year, the conference has included film practitioners in recognition of the crucial role they have played in increasing film education and discourse in the region. We have previously provided space for independent filmmakers and screenings of their works, focused on curriculum development, the importance of film archival work, and highlighting alternative cultures of cinema. This year, the conference seeks to include workshops that bring together film activists and film critics from within the region.

The three-day conference includes film screenings and panels on:
Film Activism/ Censorship
Gender and Sexuality in Southeast Asian Cinemas
Framing Rural and Urban Spaces
Conversation with Independent Filmmakers
Mobile Cinemas: Piracy, Funding, and Festivals
Ways of Looking: Film Criticism and Intertextuality
Nation and Nationalism
Negotiating the Local and the Global
Indonesian Films: Representation and Reform
Conversation with Independent Filmmakers
