WORLD AIDS DAY AND THE SECOND ASIA SOUTH EAST SHORT FILM FESTIVAL
4PM: WORLD AIDS DAY – During the 1970s, San Francisco became a safe haven for the gay and lesbian community. But, after almost a decade of celebration, the city became ground zero of the AIDS epidemic. Director David Weissman explores the incredible story of love and loss in WE WERE THERE (2011, 90 min). 7.30PM: The South-East-Asian film industry is rich with talent, but independent filmmakers have very few opportunities to reach a global audience. Update yourself by visiting our ASIA SOUTH EAST SHORT FILM FESTIVAL, curated by UK-film enthusiast Roderick Fraser. It showcases the best work of both established and upcoming filmmakers, with English subtitles.
