Asia Livelihood Documentary Competition and Festival is a search for documentaries that bring to light policies, socio – cultural norms and religious practices that prevent or constrain people from earning an honest livelihood in the vocation of their choice. It aims at capturing the livelihood challenges faced by the rural and urban poor and bringing it to the attention of current and future policy makers. This year, screening committee has shortlisted 9 documentaries on livelihood challenges in Asia.

Eminent activists, policy makers, and academics present, discuss, and debate innovations in government delivery of education, role of new technologies, barriers to the entry of educational institutions, methods of assuring quality of education, and decentralisation of curricula and textbook authorship.
