The International Academic Forum, in conjunction with its global partners, is pleased to announce the Inaugural Annual Asian Conference on Film and Documentary 2012, to be held in Osaka, Japan, from 2-4 November 2012.

The FilmAsia event is a remarkable cross-cutural and interdisciplinary discussion, which encourage academics and scholars to meet and exchange ideas and views in a forum encouraging lively but respectful dialogue. This international conference will bring together a number of university scholars working throughout Japan, Asia, and beyond to share ideas.

FilmAsia 2012 will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education. Academics working in Japan and Asia will be encouraged to forge working relationships with each other, as well as with colleagues from Europe and the US, facilitating partnerships across borders. We hope to see you (again) in Osaka in the fall.
