A STATISTICAL OVERVIEW OF
INDEPENDENT CINEMA IN SOUTHEAST ASIA
SEAStudy is a long-term initiative to research independent films in Southeast Asia. By compiling data year to year, Purin Pictures aims to form as comprehensive a picture as possible of the general health of the SEA independent film industry. Since the revenue cycle of a film is not complete until years after its release, each year's research is focused on films from two years prior. In this 1st edition of SEAStudy, we present the annual report for films world-premiered in 2016.
This publication serves as a resource for film professionals in the region and abroad. We hope that you will find it useful. Finally, and most importantly, we thank all the filmmakers who took part in this initiative.
