SEA Movie Theater Project to Hold Exhibition at BIFF

After a summer-long hiatus from documenting movie theaters, an eventful future seems to be in store. From October 6th to the 14th, the 16th annual Busan International Film Festival will be taking place in the South Korean city it's named for. And of all the honors to have bestowed, the SEA Movie Theater Project has been invited to hold an exhibition there. For the duration of the show, a grand total of 50 images depicting Southeast Asian movie theater architecture and atmosphere will be on display. At 6PM on the 7th, I'll be giving a talk about the project at the brand new Busan Cinema Center, which from the looks of it may very well be the ultimate cinema complex in the world.


  1. Will it be possible to have a video of your talk put up on YouTube or something? I'd love to hear/see it.

  2. Congratulations! I wish I could be there to see the collection and how you present it. Stefan

  3. Good news, Mr Projectionist! You deserve the highest praise for this incredible work. I am expecting that my favorite Hla Thiri Cinema will be chosen for the exhibition.

  4. I will gladly reveal my true identity if footage of the presentation is made.

    The Hla Thiri is most certainly represented in the exhibition.

    Thank you all for your loyal reader/viewership.
