SAC Film Festivals

SAC ASEAN Film Festival 2019

21 – 23 June 2019

SAC ASEAN Film Festival was first organized by the Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn Anthropology Centre (SAC) in 2012 during the growing awareness that Thai society was preparing itself to be part of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC). The AEC provides an opportunity for economic advancement in the region through the transfer of capital and labor, the awareness to learn about the different dimensions of the ASEAN community, learning the greetings of our neighboring countries, and getting familiar with their currency, the national floras and attires.


27 – 31 August 2020

This year, the Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn Anthropology Centre (SAC), will be hosting an online film festival or SAC Anthropology Film Festival 2020 between 27-30 August 2020 on the theme of “Loss and Grief through Cultures.” Evolving from the SAC ASEAN Film Festival, which had been organized since 2012, and the SAC Visual Anthropology Film Festival, which was held in 2016, the SAC Anthropology Film Festival will expand the scope of its film selections previously focusing on the films from Thailand and Southeast Asia to those from other continents. With our ultimate goal of enhancing a better understanding of cultural diversity, we do hope that the festival will play an important role in exposing its audience to anthropological concepts and perspectives and fostering a heathy, learning environment of Anthropology in Thailand.
