The ACR Lab aims to make Singapore the hub of film studies in Southeast Asia and to forge strong alliances with the world’s leading film studies institutions and film festivals.

What we do

The ACR Lab is envisioned as a multifaceted hub for teaching, research, public outreach, and transnational networking of Asian film and media. As stated above, the ACR Lab will serve as a platform to connect Singapore’s faculty and graduate students who are interested in Asian cinema. The ACR Lab will make use of Singapore’s geographical competitiveness as a country where East, South, and Southeast Asian cinema are intertwined, and it will benefit from Singapore’s proximity to the Chinese-language film market.
