Call for Entry 2021: Southeast Asian Producers Network



10 September 2021 (Friday)

The Southeast Asian Producers Network invites producers from the region to share their wealth of knowledge and ideas with one another. The network is a platform for further dialogue and opportunities for collaboration.

In an intimate closed-door setting, selected and invited Southeast Asian producers with projects in development will share the process of developing their works – the unknowns, shortfalls, and possibilities of stretching the potential of their company’s work.
