Festival promises plenty for film fans
THE first annual Cambodian International Film Festival opens up three days packed with 120 films from 28 countries tomorrow at Chenla Theatre.
The “basic concept” of the festival “is to educate, inspire, and entertain” – films are priced at $1 each and screenings are free for students with school ID.
Cedric Eloy of the Cambodian Film Commission said that they selected films with the conscious intention to lead a revival of Cambodian cinema by engaging with different perspectives from international film.
“The idea of this program is to present feature film from around the world in a narrative way that is different from Cambodia,” he said.
