The Annual Southeast Asian Cinemas Conference organisers and members regret to announce the passing of one of our most well-loved and active members, Filipino-Canadian film critic, lecturer and curator, Alexis Tioseco (1981-2009) and his partner, film journalist Nika Bohinc (1979-2009), on September 1st, 2009. They were murdered by robbers in his house in Quezon City. Alexis had been part of ASEACC from the first conference in 2004, Singapore. He subsequently went on to start up one of the most respected websites on Southeast Asian Cinema, Criticine.com. He will be deeply missed for his contribution and his passion for and commitment to cinema.

Tributes to Alexis Tioseco and Nika Bohinc:
