Description
Common Lives Film Festival is a side event of the 3rd International Conference on International Research and Development (ICIRD 2013). 

Originated as Thammasat Human Rights Film Festival featuring films and documentaries on human rights in Southeast Asia, the 2nd year of the festival once again aims to bring together academia and film. 

The event will be an opportunity for participants of ICIRD 2013 and also the general public to get a different view on the very same research issues that will be discussed at the conference. A reflection of real life challenges in Southeast Asia mirrored in artists’, journalists’ or activists’ films and documents from all around this region.
