Film

For 11 years, from 2005-2016, the Center ran a weekly Southeast Asian Film Series, which served as an academic forum to introduce our local community to Southeast Asian filmmakers and their films, many of which are rarely seen outside the SEA region. From January 2016 onward, the Film program will only screen films during special occasions. We encourage SEA film aficionados to subscribe to the film newsletter to receive updates on the availability of future screenings.



Over the course of the Southeast Asian Film Series, more than 7600 people attended the free screenings of subtitled films, a number of which were translated and subtitled by students in the CSEAS subtitling program. The films selected each year are purchased in Southeast Asia using Center funds or are given to the Center in support of our educational mission. Most of the screened films are then given to the UH Southeast Asia Library Collection as a resource for use in the classroom and other community educational needs.

The Center also keeps track of notable SEA film events happening at the University of Hawaiʻi and in the wider Hawaiʻi community, such as Southeast Asian films featured at the Hawaiʻi International Film Festival.
