Beginning its 9th season in Fall 2013, the Center’s weekly Southeast Asian Film Series serves as an academic forum to introduce our local community to Southeast Asian filmmakers and their films that are rarely seen outside of the region. Over the course of this weekly series more than 7000 people have 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.
