Filmmakers who have the passion and commitment to  telling powerful stories through creative documentary, we are here to help develop your idea by  sharing our expertise from our pool of mentors. 

Lenses x Cultures is a project funded by the British Council through the Connections Through  Culture Program. The Creative Documentary Film Lab is designed to promote new connections,  exchanges, and collaborations between the UK and Southeast Asia that build long-term relationships  among artists, creative practitioners, and art and cultural organizations, hubs, networks, and  collectives.

The Creative Documentary Film Lab aims to intensify the stories and develop the project with  the filmmakers that aim to enhance their skills in creative documentary and to produce competitive  documentary projects showcasing the unique narratives.
